World Aids Day

Since its inception in 1998, World AIDS Day has fought strongly to gain awareness, support and money to promote its campaign to educate the masses about the impact of AIDS and to rally against the prejudices and injustices those living with AIDS still face today. With the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) estimating that almost 40 million people live with HIV in the world today and, add to that, the 4 million who were infected with HIV just last year, the coordinators of World AIDS Day have their work cut out for them. For just one day, World AIDS Day 2007 will be here reminding the world that HIV is not a disease that can be swept under the rug and forgotten.

  1. This morning I heard on LA radio that new infections in LA County have increased this past year by 10% in the ages of 20-24…
    So sad..
    More does need to be done

  2. Hi Louise,

    By chance, I bought the Esquire that featured you on the cover with an article about AIDS. I think it was 8 years ago…

    I remember reading the only clever thing I heard about the subject IN YEARS (I’m 24), something like:

    people have grown bored of AIDS

    That’s exactly what we need to avoid.

    I visited one hospital where people with AIDS were treated and it felt so good just to provide a little company and joy to someone who is in a kind of spiritual pain. Or searching for somebody who cares.

    Blessings.

  3. Well…

    Let’s wash your hands and legs…
    Let’s think about ten commandments…Moses said… let’s think about Jesus said…and don’t forget your family…Whenever, I don’t think real religion and spiritual people or regular people aren’t get this kind of sick…
    So, it’s message…and, It’s paradox…

    Let’s wash!

    What a HELL is that!
