World Aids Day

I'm a month late, but I want to point out an important day: World AIDS Day.

I want to quote all the true and sad statistics about the increasing amount of people infected by HIV and all those dying from AIDS. But not today. Partially out of laziness but I don't want to push guilt on any readers

AIDS isn't a disease that just affects the person infected. It affects whole families. Parents die and leave children that need to be cared for by grandparents, taken in by other families or worse, they fend for themselves. Essentially it erasing a whole generation of adults. When a family is already struggling in poverty, this intensifies the struggle.

So, spend some time thinking along with me about the horrible effects that HIV and AIDS are bringing upon our world.
