Seeing so much kindness towards this Muslim man, is so refreshing.
I’m a Muslim and people call me terrorist. Do you trust me? If yes, hug me.
With that simple message written on a cardboard, the Danish Muslim Sami Irssak went to the streets. The response is incredibly heartwarming.
Can’t get too much free hugs
Hugging people is such an awesome way to connect with people. Take Ken Nwadike, an incredibly positive and energetic man. Founder of the Free Hugs Project (and also CEO of Superhero Events and Director of the Hollywood Half Marathon). Continuing the nonviolent movement of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the mission of the Free Hugs Project is to spread love, inspire change and raise awareness of social issues.
When the tensions between police and the black community in the USA was rising to record height, Ken took it to the streets. Hugging police officers. Again, with an amazing effect.
Put things into perspective
