World AIDS Day...

In the 80’s news of a disease that selected deviants spread like wild fire. By the 90’s people were starting to learn that AIDS could knock on any persons life…not discriminating gender, sexual orientation, life style or race. Research as been done, experimental drugs used, prevention discussed, celebrities have advocated for money, support and understanding. And yet in 2008 the average person still does not accept that AIDS has or will touch their life in some way.

There are those people out there that talk about choices…that somehow people making bad choices receive this as a punishment. Really…I would love to pick through their lives and find all of the bad choices made to prove that point.

AIDS and HIV have touched my life through very dear friends. These are people that I laugh with, cry to, listen and depend on daily. I wish for them health, peace, understanding and support. I am so thankful for their teaching, understanding, surviving and living! I pray for all of us…CURE!

I agree... EXCEPT... can they please call it World Aids AWARENESS Day at least. Without the "awareness" part or something similar it seems like a bad way to phrase things.
