NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -- An unusual site today on Nashville's Pedestrian Bridge. A man and his daughter holding a cardboard sign with a request.
The did not want money, or shelter or food....what they did want was a Hug.
"To hug or not to hug" for Billy Park, that is the question.
The heat rising from the Cumberland River couldn't stop the Love.
"It is hot, not used to this heat..."
Still Billy Park was out here on his Bridge Trip across America looking for hugs.
"You up for a hug..?" Park asked a passerby.... "Thank You Man" was the response.
He's not political, not Democrat or Republican, he says just human.
"I'm from Maryland, I'm going to Baltimore."
Small talk leads to
"Would you like a hug sure..."
He'll hit all 50 states some with daughter Savvy.
"We're all human, the quickest way to get back to that is with a hug..." immediately bring you back to that...."
He knows for a man holding a hug sign, it's cross to the other side of the road creepy.
Not everyone wants to hug a stranger.
" I would say more walk by me, more walk bye but once one does a lot of them do."
<< bite 13:34 Like you saw on the street people cross to the other side I'm not gonna force them to do something they don't want to do."
" Hi there how you doing..."
Knowing that changing a country takes effort.
<< nat snd " what's up man how ya doing"
