Previous Entry Share Next Entry

It's the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day today. From clean needles to safe sex, the fight against AIDS has touched everyone's life. How has it affected yours?

Lessee: other than 15 dead friends and 1 dead love-of-my-life, not much...
  • Ouch.

    My thoughts are with you. it's a rough season.
  • <3.
  • Ouch, indeed.

  • love you.
  • There's just nothing to say other than I'm sorry for your losses. I'm sorry for the world's losses from this inexcusable, wretched disease. :(
  • *hugs*
  • *hugs a lot*
  • I'm so sorry...

    How has it affected me? I've lost a handful of friends, a couple of co-workers, and the best uncle a little girl could have. But I also have a brother who's benefitted from the openness and visibility the epidemic provoked, and a number of friends who are completely comfortable (and utterly shameless) in their sexuality for the same reasons... and I have a deep and abiding desire to piss on Ronnie's grave.
  • Words are never enough. Nothing is.
  • You have my deepest sympathies. I too have lost dear ones to this horrible disease.
  • :(

    I only just learned a friend from Reno is positive. That's likely more than the "average American" for whose want of awareness this day was created, but I know it pales next to many of my friends' experiences.
  • the writer's blocks generally suck.

    also: *hugs*
