World AIDS Day 2010: I pray…

Today I pray for all of those suffering with HIV and AIDS.  I pray for families coping with such disease. For the youngsters and future generations, I pray that your governments will fund educational activities/programmes so that you never have to worry about HIV and AIDS.  I pray, naively perhaps, that our governments (worldwide) will stop being so damn selfish and stupid by denying the causes of HIV and therefore limiting education and investment. I pray that we find a cure for HIV.  If I get to see a cure for HIV (and Cancer) developed in my lifetime, I will want for nothing else.

Whether you’re religious or not, whether you believe in a God, many Gods or just ‘the powers that be’, I believe that we all want the same thing.  HIV doesn’t discriminate.

Be safe and spread the word: safe sex or no sex.

      The sisters who pray – I like it! I cannot believe that HIV/AIDS is spreading and defeating us. Spreading the news is so vital. Thank you LCT.

      So, so sad Justyna. I cannot imagine what it must have been like for your friend to witness that. Thank you for sharing.

      When I saw the beautiful children in the video, I cried so much. They’re smiling and chatting away despite having lost their loved ones. These children are lucky because many more are forgotten.

      We’re all so blessed.
