World Aids Day

Today is the 20th annual day of remembrance for those we have lost to AIDS.
Today is also a day set aside to highlight support for those living with HIV/AIDS and their families.
Today is a day to re-educate ourselves about prevention, resources, and getting tested.
Today we raise awareness that although treatment and care is greatly improved, the epidemic is far from over. Far from over.
Here are some links to check out.
Take this quiz.
Monica Roberts has some interesting info.
A very personal remembrance from Alexandra about her friend Ginger.

You can find out how to help build awareness and learn about the global pandemic, here.

Here's my big red ribbon for all my friends who have died of AIDS and all those I love who are living with HIV/AIDS. For them and for all of us.
