Does anyone know what happened to the maintainer of this community? I noticed that their journal has been deleted but not sure if they got a new journal and just never re-joined or left LJ altogether.

Bracelet [15 Dec 2007|07:14pm]
I finally got my bracelet. :)

My Until There's A Cure (raising money and raising awareness of HIV/AIDS) bracelet.


I wanted blue but all they had was tons of red and a couple green, so I got red.I've been wanting one for YEARS, and there was never a location near enough to buy one. Now, of course, you can on the net, but since I finally found one close to me, I went today and bought one. I'm going to buy the blue one on the net and one day hope to buy the silver one

World AIDS Day [01 Dec 2007|10:13am]
I know this community hasn't been active since 2005, but I see there are still members. If there is anyone out there reading, today is an important day.

Today is World AIDS Day.

I posted this in my journal.

Today, December 1st is World AIDS Day. Every December 1st (although every day it should be on your mind) is a day that lets the world know that HIV/AIDS is still impacting the US, Africa and plenty other countries.

Here is an interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious diseases at the National Institutes of Health, about the disease and how it's impacted the world in the past few decades.


Here is more information about the disease and links to different organizations/charities to help keep up awareness, prevention and helping to fight this deadly disease.


Thank you.

Lamentations About a World With AIDS [01 Dec 2005|12:56pm]

There is a disease, that is killing too many people. Even if it isn't affecting me directly, even if it isn't attacking the populations it used to, its still here. Killing. Men. Women. Children. Every day.

I am a soldier in the war against AIDS. No, I am not an ID (infectious disease) doc. My position, as confirmed by several ID docs, is much worse. I'm the "draft representative"; as an HIV counselor, I get to tell people that they, unfortunately, have been drafted in the battle of the war against AIDS.

I'm a recuit. An HIV negative man who has managed to stay that way for all of my 31 years. I joined this war because I thought I could make a difference, I thought this was a war we could win. I joined in 1997.

I've been on the front lines ever since.

Every time I tell someone that yes, they tested positive for HIV, I die a little inside. I see the faces go from hopeful to defeated...and... there's nothing you can say. What do you do? I have, etched in my memory, the faces of every person I have ever told about their disease. I've seen tears. I've seen anger. I've seen people walk out. And after every telling situation, I am completely useless. Lost.

Sometimes I wonder why I am in the battle. But my indecision doesn't really matter.

There's a war to win.
