In addition to MLK Day, today is National Hug Day! The idea behind National Hug Day is to encourage everyone to hug family and friends more often. Cooperative Living reader Linda Deane of Stanardsville sent us this adorable photo of two little ones meeting for the first time with a warm hug! "They needed a hug. Is this not great???" Linda writes. Yes, Linda, it is! Thanks for sharing this wonderful photo!
