Human Grace: American Soldiers Rally To The Beside of the Ft. Hood "Hug Lady"

Hugging the soldiers is something she says the Lord gave her to do,” Dewees said."

“You don’t really pay much attention to it until you finally step back and see what her hugs have meant to other people."

“I don’t know if she has regrets of me not being met by someone when I returned home from the Vietnam War, but she’s doing what needed to be done back then,” he said."

“She’s changed people’s lives.”

"Laird is feeling better and was recently released from intensive care. She's now able to see visitors, and a steady stream of soldiers and veterans have made it it her bedside. Between those visits and the growing financial help, Laird is being repaid for her countless acts of kindness for the men and women who risk their lives for Americans."

“It’s coming from people she’s hugged,” Allen said. 

It’s them hugging back.”
