World AIDS Day
Since 1988, an annual global day of commemoration of the more than 35,000,000 people who have died from acquired immunodeficiency syndrome caused by the human immunodeficiency virus…
And a day of compassion for the 34,000,000 people living with HIV, and for their families, friends, and caregivers…
A day meant to highlight the human need to labor every day toward comprehensive prevention and treatment, and an effective cure.

Wayne Roberts Abernathy, my brother, my only sibling, and a far, far better human being and man than I ever will be, who, in this blog space, I remembered on this past Thanksgiving Day, died of AIDS.
Thinking of Wayne and all of my brothers and sisters who have died of HIV/AIDS, requiescant in pace.
Thinking of me and all who live, let us not rest until HIV/AIDS is no more.
