Noon-time walkers on the Nicollet Mall are accustomed to being accosted with flyers, petitions, requests for interviews and other disruptions. These interruptions often produce sober rejections or glancing the other way.
However, the “Peace Huggers” got smiles, laughter and joyful faces.
It was all from one woman’s idea. Grace Morgan ,Minneapolis got the idea, posted on Facebook and 3 other women showed up to hug. The recipients reactions were most appropriate for Peace Day.
