Congratulations to Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin
Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Saturday and I hope you had a safe and great week. I know many of our friends are traveling for the Memorial Day weekend. It is another busy day for Dab the AIDS Bear and me.
Dab the AIDS Bear will be at IML in Chicago this weekend. So if you are at the different events for IML, you can have your picture taken with Dab the AIDS Bear in support of people living with HIV and AIDS.
Many thanks to our Ambassadors of Hope who are traveling with their Dab the AIDS Bears at events this weekend and getting pictures. Being just one person, I can only be in one place at one time but with the help of our Ambassadors, Dab the AIDS Bear can be any many places at once.
We would also like to congratulate Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin for being presented with the 2011 AIDS Alliance Public Policy Award this past week in Washington, DC.
Congresswoman Baldwin made a statement which really struck home with me. She said "To all those who hear "you cant, you shouldnt, you wont" I say "you can, you should, you will". Thanks for having your picture taken with Dab the AIDS Bear which is featured in the blog today.
Her saying is not only pertinent to people with HIV and AIDS but to everyone out there. It is up to us to live our dreams. It is also up to us to take responsibility for our action and how we treat others.
I am going to keep the blog short for today because of two reasons. First I want you to go out and enjoy your holiday. Remember life is not a dress rehearsal. Secondly, Dab the AIDS Bear and I have to get running. We have to go do our workout before we attend an event this afternoon.
So here is wishing all of you a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend.
Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope, happiness and just enough.
big bear hug,
