Tomorrow, December 1, is World AIDS Day. Sponsored and promoted by the World Health Organization (WHO) and observed globally, it is the day to heighten awareness of this devastating pandemic. HIV/AIDS has affected the lives of tens of millions in every country on this planet. It is truly an equal opportunity and universal disease. HIV does not discriminate.
We, the human race, have lived with and suffered with this affliction for thirty-one years. We've made strides in knowledge and treatment; in most cases, people with HIV are no longer the outcasts of the society in which they live. Almost all of us are aware of how HIV is transmitted and how we can protect ourselves from infection. Yet, tens of thousands contract HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, each and every day.
Somewhere, somehow, the message just isn't being understood. Or, it isn't being taken seriously. Otherwise, we wouldn't see the high intection rates we have all across the globe. Every continent. Every country. Every gender. Every race. Every age. Every religion. Every economic and educational level. Every ability. HIV does not discriminate.
Peace! Get naked. Enjoy!
