So here's what I've been up to lately. I've e mailed one of our congress persons asking them to make December AIDS Awareness month. Most of you know that I feel HIV/AIDS has become too complacent here in the states. Can one person in the public sector make a difference in many peoples lives? I think they can by taking action going to the next step. I was going to bore the senator with all types of HIV/AIDS statistic and then thought they should already have that knowledge.
I kept my e mail short and sweet and here it is for all to read. I just pray that this proposal comes to pass. Enjoy my e mail to the senator.
As a person who was diagnosed with AIDS and not just just having HIV 3 1/2 years ago, what would it take for congress to make December AIDS awareness month?
In my humble opinion, the mentality here in the states has become too complacent about HIV/AIDS. The general public attitude is HIV/AIDS is a disease that's manageable and yet there are deaths daily in this country from HIV/AIDS along with opportunistic infections from HIV/AIDS.
As a congress person, I'm sure you are well aware of the latest HIV/AIDS statistics and I will not inform you of the latest statistics. I'm also sure you know that HIV/AIDS is still very prevalent in this country.
Now as a person living with AIDS educating about what it's like living with AIDS on his blogs and Myspace, I would like to know if you'd be willing to propose that December becomes AIDS awareness month. December seems like the logical choice since World AIDS day is the first of that month.
I look forward to hearing your input in this matter that we can further educate and slow down the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
