Why ban hugs?
TO THE EDITORS:
I have shopped at a popular grocery store in Leola for a long time and I have gotten to know a bagger and a senior citizen I call "Pappy.''
After bagging my groceries, we hug each other and wish each other a "nice day.'' The last time I shopped at this store, Pappy said he was given "heck'' by the manager because he and I hugged each other.
I would like to convey to this manager that hugs are a great sign of friendship and it's Christian-like to do so. After all, it is better than bullets from a gun, as is so common in today's world.
