“World AIDS Day is a time for me to think of those we have lost, back in the 80s and 90s, and the people who we continue to lose today.
They fought hard to live the lives they had. They fought hard so that we could live the lives we have. This past year saw a few deaths, and although I didn't know them personally, I think of them, pray for them like they were my best friends. Their stories live on and give me motivation to continue moving forward. Moving forward is my gift to them.”
