Today is World AIDS Day...

December 1st is World AIDS Day. Some people have never heard of it. Some wore red ribbons to work today in support of their friends and family members that have been infected. Some spent a moment reflecting on the lives and loves that they have lost in this battle. For some people, every day is AIDS Day and they avoided the entire subject today.

I read today that 6000 children are orphaned by AIDS each day. That's 250 per hour. Twelve children will have lost at least one parent while you are reading this short blog entry.

This is ridiculous. AIDS is preventable. We know what causes it, and how to avoid it. We've been fighting this disease for over 25 years. Why are thousands of people being diagnosed with it every day?

The main area of the world where this is out of control is Africa and the crooked governments there are too busy pilfering funds from well-meaning charities to focus on the problems of their people.

Plus, in Africa, there are cultural obstacles to overcome, as well. Women are getting the picture; men don't want to know about prevention. Some would rather die (and kill others) than use a condom.

It actually has more to do with rape than: governments and ignorence. It is used to show power and as such there are no steps used for prevention.
