Public service announcement

I saw this post on Erin's blog, and wanted to share it with you. This is something very near to my heart, and I believe it is near to God's heart, too. Please take the time to read it and educate yourself about HIV so together we can change the stigma.

Do I think that HIV specifically is near to God's heart? No more than any other affliction befalling His children...but I appreciate your concern for this preventable disease and its effects on the unsuspecting children that fall prey to it. It's good to be informed about what HIV is and isn't.

i never wrote that God cares more about those afflicted with HIV than with something else. i think we agree that that is ridiculous. i DO wonder if i'd said that cancer or the murder of the unborn was a cause near to God's heart, if you'd have felt the need to leave a similar comment.

Heehee, Lisa and Andy you make my day!

I've thought so many times about not allowing anonymous comments, but then only people with google accounts can leave one.

Thanks for posting this. I consider myself an educated and intelligent women, but even I had some confusion around transmission.

This was enlightening and appreciated! I will now be one of the ones to help spread the world...

You completely missed the mark 'anonymous'! This was about education and not semantics.
