African American Veterans Honored with New Monument
The African American Veterans Monument was unveiled last month in New York. The monument consists of 12 concrete pillars – one for each major war that the US has fought. Read more about the monument and its importance in this article from CNN.
Virtual Hug Video
My 1440 daily news email has a monthly “Human Kind” section where I found this video of virtual hugs. It was nice with lots of people offering hugs to the camera which works if you use your imagination. I loved the song playing along with the hugs, though I had to turn down the volume as the pitch got a little high for me at times. You can check it out at “The Nicest Place on the Internet.”

Hugs have become so rare since the Coronavirus hit our shores and set up a home among us. Virtual hugs are not the same, but I appreciate the sentiment ❤

True. The virtual hugs were a bit strange to me at first, but I appreciated the people who were willing to give it a try with such joy in the video. I’m glad you appreciate the sentiment, too. ❤
