I remember the first time I heard of Aids and saw images of those suffering from it flash across the television screen.
I remember friends lost…the hateful rhetoric of those who saw their death as God’s judgment…the courageous activists who have taken us so far…the marches and protests…the songs and poems…and the continuing presence of Aids in the world.
And I circle back to the fact that every day is World Aids Day.
Every second…and we must place a priority on treatment, research and education.
Every hour…and we cannot afford to continue to think of Aids as someone else's problem.
Every day…and we must discuss of Aids impacts our loved ones and communities and act on that accordingly from a position of respect.
Every second...every hour…every single day.
