Another Voice in the Fight on HIV and AIDS

Welcome to another entry in my life. I hope you are having a great week so far. It has turned cold here in Jacksonville where I am resting up for a couple of days before heading back out on the road. Luckily we only have one more week before the presidential election is finally over. Well at least the voting will be over. I am sure there will be contested results by the loser in the states with very close voting.

I know you are used to hearing me talk about the need for more education about HIV and AIDS especially with regards to the young people in our country. Not being able to discuss the use of condoms in our school system is helping spread HIV and AIDS to our children. Burying our head in the sand like it is not a fact is no longer acceptable. At one suburbian high school over 50 teenagers have tested HIV positive.

Now you can hear it from another HIV activist by watching his webclip from CNN and IReport.com by clicking play below. I would like to thank Ryan for not only being another voice in the war on HIV and AIDS but for allowing us to present his clip on our website.

We need many more voices just like Ryan's to help stop the spread of HIV and AIDS. Ryan and I do not do anything that you can not do. It just takes the courage to stop out of your comfort zone and help save a life. You can make the difference between life and death for another person. It's your choice.

I hope you made the most of your day and had a great one.

Wishing you health, hope and happiness.

Big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
