World AIDS Day
« on: December 01, 2009, 11:47:06 AM »
Blessings and good health to everyone, especially as we mark this occasion.   I have not attended a W.A.D. event in a few years; the Patient Advisory Board that I am on is sponsoring an event tomorrow.  Dr. Michael Saag will be our speaker.

I am used to W.A.D. events being more of a 'memorial' than an educational opportunity.

Today is a day for us to remember all those who have died from AIDS.   Many paid the ultimate price for the access to good drugs that most of us enjoy today, and we tend to often take that for granted.

With love,

Tonight, I'll attend the educational/memorial event ("Red Ribbon Diary...The Story of HIV" ) sponsored by the Catawba Care Coalition/Christopher Clinic (my new clinic ) and the Winthrop University Wellness Services that will be held at the Plowden Auditorium, Winthrop University in Rock Hill SC.

I always attended this kind of event when I was living in OH in remembrance of all my lost friends and for my Randy. Last year however, I skipped out because the week prior I had attended a memorial hosted by Mercy Medical Center Hospice (an annual event honoring those who had passed away under their care during the previous year) and was there in remembrance of my Jim who had only passed away a handful of months before.

Tonight, I'm going to this event, in a new place and a new state, to once again mark another year my partners and my friends are gone and to make sure that they are not forgotten as long as I'm still here.

Glad we all come here everyday, let alone to share the importance of this much needed day.  I was upset to see the Philadelphia papers not make a big mention out of it as in previous years.  The general public needs to be informed, not just today, but very frequently.
