-Today, the world unites once again in hopes of increasing humanity's awareness and help in the fight to stop the spread of AIDS, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome; the disease that eventually develops within most suffering from HIV, the Human Immunodeficiency Virus.
-It is estimated that this pandemic has claimed the lives of over 26 million victims since its formal discovery in 1981 and that at least that many, if not more, are known to be living with HIV even as you read these words!
-While this is the one day out of the year that one will see more red-ribbons- than any other, that does not mean the end is in sight yet.
-Only with time and effort can scientists hope to discover a cure.
-Only by common sense can one hope to prevent from being exposed to the HIV virus.
-If you think you might be carrying the disease, get tested.
-If you're not, don't take the risk of becoming another statistic.
