Morning in nytimes “For teenagers, Hello means “how about a hug?”
I think it’s rather nice. So what if kids just stay in the hallway and hug? It seems some people have issues with it:
“And schools from Hillsdale, N.J., to Bend, Ore., wary in a litigious era about sexual harassment or improper touching — or citing hallway clogging and late arrivals to class — have banned hugging or imposed a three-second rule.”
Wow. I think US schools have more to worry about than students jovially hugging one another. Hugging’s a natural “feel good”.
When school shooting and bullying are increasingly in the news, just let the young American culture embrace the hug:)
