Hugs Are Good Way to Show Your Love

I was born into a strict German immigrant family where hugs were given only on formal occasions, but ever so carefully. In the early 1980s, Leo Buscaglia's  PBS shows inspired me to teach myself to hug. In five years, I went from arm length to gentle bear hugs, from grimaces to smiles, from hugs are bad to hugs are good.
