Full Steam Ahead!

It's amazing how you can be going hard for your cause, and then all of a sudden you have to stop, regroup, and get refocused! That's exactly what just recently happened to me. Standing tall, strong, and determined… against all Stigma and against all odds. It just didn't matter to me if you wanted to talk about HIV/AIDS, hear about it, or be about it...you were going to hear something that hopefully you would share in your travels.

The reality is that people are not talking about it, nor are they wearing the "red ribbon".  I remember a young lady asked me why I was wearing a red ribbon, and wanted to know what type of cancer that color was for? To my amazement and shock, I captured an educational moment that I am sure she didn't sign up for, but I was happy to oblige!
 
So many people are choosing to ignore the details and information about HIV; I am beginning to think that the world has lost their minds!  Well, I took a deep breathe and planted my heels in the ground. I have to keep moving forward.  I can't stop, and won't stop. We are too close to the CURE!
