Beautiful Video: A Reason To Smile

When was the last time you told your friend, family, or even a stranger that they were loved and appreciated?
Yousef Saleh Erakat, better known as Fousey on YouTube, decided to walk around a college campus giving single roses to random ladies to give them a reason to smile.  And he caught it all on camera.
It’s so true that in this day and age, we believe it when a stranger calls us ‘sexy’ or ‘beautiful’ on some arbitrary photo posted on social media but if someone says something nice in person, we’re quick to question what they want or why they’re paying us a compliment.
In the video, before he starts handing out roses, Yousef says:
So I feel like social media has desensitized us so much as a generation. We have trouble taking compliments nowadays unless it’s left on an Instagram comment or Twitter or Facebook. So today I’m gonna take it back to how it used to be and let people know that they’re appreciated and loved in person. Crazy, right?
What happens next is super cute!
Watch below as Yousef spends a day handing out roses to strangers in hopes of making them smile.:

A Reason to Smile Video - Fousey 1
Meet Yousef Saleh Erakat, also known as Fousey on YouTube. He recently decided to let girl's feel appreciated, by a random act of kindness in a video which has gained over 4 million views. So so sweet! He casually walked around a university college campus giving single roses to random ladies to give them a reason to smile, and make their day, throwing in a few compliments here and there, which I thought was so nice.

I totally agree with what he says in the introduction in regards to why he decided to capture this sweet gesture on camera. Basically in this day and age, guys will comment on an Instagram or Twitter picture and compliment a chick, which gives us a sign that we are 'liked.' It's like approval in a sense.  Let's take it back to the traditional approach for a quick moment which we all know ladies prefer, and which Yousef so cleverly documented.
