It is World AIDS Day. We continue as a World to fight HIV/AIDS and I sincerely hope that in my lifetime I can see this illness eliminated via a cure/vaccine/etc. As readers of the blog are aware, I worked for a nonprofit that helped spread knowledge about sexually transmitted infections and assisted those with HIV/AIDS at acquiring their medications for cheap or free. Besides being a stay-at-home parent (which is a job for sure) it is the work I am proudest of having done in my lifetime so far. Even if it doesn't get as many headlines these days as it used to, HIV/AIDS is still an epidemic, and still deserves our attention. Efforts are always being made to help combat this illness and help those with it. Between education, prevention, and treatment I'm sure much progress can be made in fighting HIV/AIDS. That's my hope, at least.
