These are some friends I met in South Africa.
When we asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up, they told us doctors, soccer players, lawyers… Everything you would expect. But most of them will never see those dreams come true. About 75% of these kids were born HIV positive.
This is Avalon Cemetery in Soweto, outside Johannesburg. Its 430 acres are almost at capacity, with 90% of its yearly burials being AIDS-related deaths.
Today is World AIDS Day. I beg you to take two minutes today to think of how you can get involved, to make a difference.
