Remember World AIDS Day - December 1, 2007

World AIDS Day is Tomorrow.

Remember that this disease is still a serious thing regardless of the drugs that are out to extended life for those infected with HIV.

On some real talk, if you're having sex - regardless of how long you've dealt with some, if you're married, think they're clean, etc. - you're still open to getting AIDS and having your life permanently changed.

PLEASE use protection and get tested for HIV on a regular basis.

This disease affects everyone all over the world, especially Communities of Color drastically - much less if you don't have the income and/or resources for the current medication that is currently out.

And let's not even think about the children who are affected by this - newly born, those sexually abused, etc.

Here are some links below for folks to check out on AIDS, its history & what it is, how to get tested, some searches for locating free testing, etc.
