I have to apologize to you all for dropping the ball this week and not addressing the fact that I missed World AIDS Day on Monday. I wasn’t aware until Monday night of what the day was. However, in my defense I wasn’t aware of much on Monday as I was in extreme pain with a bothersome wisdom tooth.
Anyway, as I was driving to work this morning, I had my radio tuned to NPR as always and I caught this week’s edition of Story Corps. This week they spoke with a woman living in Arkansas who cared for AIDS patients when they’d pretty much been abandoned by their families. She estimated she’s cared for nearly 1,000 individuals since the early 1980s.
While the story is pretty much typed out on the link here, I urge you to listen to it through the link provided on the story’s page.
