~ You always see people wearing the red ribbon supporting AIDS awareness. I wonder when nobody’s looking are they worthy of wearing it. Would they knowingly let someone in their home that is suffering from HIV or AIDS? Would they give them a place to stay? Would they eat food prepared by them? I find it interesting to see all these people up in arms ready to support someone as long as is from arms length. Why are we still dealing with prejudices?
~ HIV/AIDS is not a thing of the past. The faces have changed, but we are still dealing with the stigma every day.
~ I just read Kate’s interview. I just want to give her a big hug! Great Interview!
~ I figured my place of employment would bust out the red ribbons at least to seem like they support the community and people we take care of every day. I am not sure if I am happy they don’t pretend to care or irritated that they should fake it for the community’s sake. An employee at my work was overheard saying, “Why should I wear a ribbon, to support fags?” I wonder why I don’t tell anyone. Well there ya go. I am just thankful this person doesn’t take care of patients or have any interaction with the public.
~ I hope and pray one day everyone will have access to affordable medication. I hope everyone can feel safe knowing sharing their status with other people.
Thank my AGLM support system!
