kemaren, waktu blogwalking ke salah satu blog anak kantor, Eru, liat ada kord sick puppies ama lagunya all the same. penasaran ma ni lagu, gw coba searching di geogle…

eh ternyata nemu video klip ini, lagunya biasa aja sih… tapi kalo didenger ma liat vclipnya kok lagunya jadi kereeen banget,  ternyata ni klip diangkat dari kisah nyata Juan Mann yang mengkampanyekan free Hugs…. jadi terharu liat klipnya… apalagi pas denger ceritanya di myspacenya isinya begini :

I’d been living in London when my world turned upside down and I’d had to come home. By the time my plane landed back in Sydney, all I had left was a carry on bag full of clothes and a world of troubles. No one to welcome me back, no place to call home. I was a tourist in my hometown.

Standing there in the arrivals terminal, watching other passengers meeting their waiting friends and family, with open arms and smiling faces, hugging and laughing together, I wanted someone out there to be waiting for me. To be happy to see me. To smile at me. To hug me.

So I got some cardboard and a marker and made a sign. I found the busiest pedestrian intersection in the city and held that sign aloft, with the words “Free Hugs” on both sides.

And for 15 minutes, people just stared right through me. The first person who stopped, tapped me on the shoulder and told me how her dog had just died that morning. How that morning had been the one year anniversary of her only daughter dying in a car accident. How what she needed now, when she felt most alone in the world, was a hug. I got down on one knee, we put our arms around each other and when we parted, she was smiling.

Everyone has problems and for sure mine haven’t compared. But to see someone who was once frowning, smile even for a moment, is worth it every time.

waah jadi ingin dipeluk…. 😛
