Chris' Corner: Hug Your Kid today!

Hug Your Kid today!

I heard about this Facebook Page today on Breakfast Television (BT), a local news/local events morning television show, and heard about it again on The Fan, Sportsnet 590, an AM Sports Talk Radio station I generally have on in the background.

It spurred me to spread the word.  On BT this morning, they were encouraging Canadians to hug their kids today in a symbolic gesture of support and in memory of those children (and teachers) that died on Friday in the Newtown, CT. tragedy.

A Page on Facebook, facebook.com/hug your kid today has been started to help spread the word.

I welcome anybody and everybody to hug your kid today.  If you have children or grandchildren, Hug them and spread the word!

We should always let our families know how much we love them. It isn't possible to know when the last time may be. I think Hug your Kid is a good idea -- for every day.

Chris,

A terrible event that has shaken me beyond words....

I'm lucky my 15yr old son is a hugger and we hug often during the day.  I really need a good hug and to give a good hug to my daughter.  She is away at College and I will be driving to get her in Salem, MA tomorrow.  I've warned her that mommy is going to hug hard and long.  

On my way to Salem, I pass Newtown.  Tomorrow instead of just driving past the exit or through town, I plan on stopping to pay my respects.  I don't think I could just drive by.

Chris:

Nice post. We tend to take too much for granite. We need to be grateful for each moment together.

Dan, that Newton CT happened on the same day that many children were stabbed to death in China is a grim "wake-up" call.  We need to care and be aware of those around us.

Virginia, I hope that this Massacre will lead to reform.  I am convinced we no longer need the right to bear arms, automatic or not.

Thank You Alan

That is a great idea, Chris.  There's a lot of weird stuff going on here today as we are so close.  Police are at most schools today and several in lock down or something.  Very sad (and also scary).

I hug my little nephews tighter and tighter.  Lots of emotions going on.
