Yes, I AM Supporting You!

Hey Grky...

You have every right to voice your opinion and I will not argue with you concerning it. However, as I have stated many times in the previous posts in this very thread, this does not have to do with the individual's chosen religon. Period. It is about us coming together as a group to HELP and support one another for the same cause of HIV/AIDS.

BTW - Welcome to the forums.

Clarifying The Concept Of Purpose


Please keep in mind that I am also an individual whom is Living With HIV/AIDS for the past (16) sixteen years, and (4) four months in this life. All of my efforts are for the common good for ALL of us whom are affected with HIV/AIDS. This is not a self-serving effort. All of these posts are not meant to single any one person out nor to offend anyone in any way shape or form. Each post is with a convicted attempt to HELP the individual. In this life, there have been many things that I have experienced personally and IF there is a slight possibility of what I have “learned” during these experiences that can, may or will HELP an individual, this is why I take my time out to share with others.

So what is going on here? Please follow what I have written below:

We Are The Lock and We Are The Key

We Can ALL Work Together To Find Solutions

I'm sorry to be such a pest, but I tend to cringe every time I see an enormous project that obviously requires huge amounts of $$$.  So I would need one of your clarifications.  The basic one that comes to mind is how different would this undertaking be (since you mentioned possibly creating a charity, and also creating an advisory board) compared to the one you tried to spearhead 6 months ago (Charity Organization/Organization Fund Raising Project; Charity Advisory Board)?  Are you trying to take the lead in this undertaking or are you simply gathering ideas from others?  I have other questions, but if you can clarify this first one, that would be helpful.

I would suggest that if you are trying to start your own charity, you get your own website.

To clarify, I'm voicing my own opinion here, I am not speaking as a moderator.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Eldon, I AM speaking as a moderator here. I just want to caution you against doing any kind of fundraising here in the Forum.

If you proceed with establishing a foundation for the purposes you've designated, (or any purpose for that matter), it should not be in any way associated with this site nor should this site be used for same.

Any "business" related to same needs to be dealt with elsewhere.

I think the main point this thread has raised is where the f**k does Eldon get all these pictures from!!?  The lock and key one isn't far short of genius.

Together we can solve this.....
