You and I are born with an innate need for touch. It’s why we shake hands, give a fist-pump, or even a hug. But can you imagine a child growing up and rarely if ever getting a hug? To never feel the warmth of a trusted adult’s hand, to sense the reaffirming gentle touch on the shoulder.
Take some time today to touch the lives of children you are entrusted with. A high-five or a hug can make a lasting impact in the life of a child and it’s so easy to do.
