World AIDS Day

"WorldAIDSDay is the time to remember those who we have lost to AIDS and to take stock of progress in responding to the pandemic."
- Yasmin Beitollahi

The words ring true. Don't let this day go to waste. New AIDS cases are on the rise around the globe, and our governments, our elected officials, and our communities need to engage this issue with all that we have.

The lead singer of the group U2, Bono, believes AIDS awareness and education is one of the defining moral issues of our time. I agree. There needs to be a big push to reduce the rate of infection, and, an even bigger push (with FUNDING and not just rhetoric) to find a cure.

Get involved on World AIDS Day, and, any day of the year for that matter.
