The Winner's Circle...
« on: July 27, 2006, 10:02:29 AM »
Does anyone know Sam Hornish Jr. ? He is the 2006 winner of The Indy 500 race. Yesterday we had "Sam Hornish Jr Day" Yes, he grew up in the same neck of the woods as i have. But anyways, the town was flooded big media moguals, and what not. We had a parade, and a celebration for him. During the festivities, he expressed his association with the shriner hospitals, and his passion in helping sick youth,etc. Afterwards he offered to sign autographs.

after my kids got thier stuff autographed,etc i approached the man to get a poster autographed, and while he was autographing it, i disclosed my status to him. I further went on to explain that Im an aids survivor, but to do so i had to go out of the area. As the area, knew NOTHING about HIV. I continued, since then i have focused on educating the communities, about HIV prevention and awareness, on my own. Speaking to schools, to large public groups, etc. And much like a racer, to really make an impact, i too need sponsors. To make a long story short, he asked for my name and number after expressing an interest in what im doing for our community. Now, whether anyone will contact me and follow through remains to be seen, but if so, my....." Know Your Status - Take The Test " campaign will be in a full swing in more than just my hometown area....

lets hope for the best.......just thought id share it with ya*

I am keeping you in my thoughts, and sending you all the good energy I can muster.
Got my fingers crossed that someone from his camp contacts you.
Good job A2H !

Have never trusted sports celebs; they always show up in hospitals visiting the  'kids', do they ever think there might be an old guy in the hospital that might wanna shake their hand? and creating foundations for the 'kids'.  Magic Johonson and Lance Armstrong took on causes for all ages, not just the kids to look good in the media...don't expect a call.

thank you everyone.

I believe the whole HIV system needs an overhaul, from education to prevention, to Stigma. I am working on a presentation program for my campaign. When 40+ million worldwide are infected, and 90% are UNKNOWINGLY carrying,transmitting, and progressing with HIV/aids....Its clear to me, the efforts need changed, the message needs changed, and the public ignorance, from the commen resident up to the politicians, needs to brought into the spotlight, and changed. Sure i could get self absorbed and do as the others, get the governments hand it, spread the failing messages....but i wont. Thats what has gotten us here to this point. History will repeat itself, even with the advancement in meds, many will die just as they did in the eighties, the 10% may not,but the 90% will. Unless thier is change.

People resist change, until change is made, then they tend to follow....the problem is, no one will try to initiate the change. Education will end ignorance, and ending ignorance is when REAL progress starts.

It doesnt stop here, I will pursue this until my last days, if need be. I just need to keep working at it, until i get some private funding, Government funding requires you to be thier puppet, say what THEY want told, etc.....not my cup of tea*

Good Luck & God Bless*
