The teens were incredible this evening. They performed a poem for World AIDS Day. Basically we brainstormed a list of what they thought of when they thought of HIV/AIDS, wrote them all down on newsprint and organized them into a poem.
While the fact that this is the 25th anniversary of the pandemic and there is not only no cure but funding for services is either being cut or being offered with a moral agenda, I am as usual reenergized and uplifted by the sheer creativity of human beings especially our youth in response to such sadness.
This is how we get to the core of people's souls. This is where change will happen.
