Just a reminder to go out and do good deeds this new year. Hope you all had a great start. Continue with love and kindness, and the world around you will be a better place.
“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”
Love is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same — with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead.”

Today is World AIDS Day and, though the number of new HIV infections in the United States has declined since 2010 —and the number of worldwide deaths from AIDS has gone down by 50 percent since 2005—there are still more than 36 million people around the world who are living with AIDS, according to the World Health Organization.
Only half are receiving appropriate treatment—which makes the NGO’s global theme for the 30th World AIDS Day particularly fitting.
This year, WHO has declared the theme is "right to health." Specifically, the organization hopes to draw attention to the need for universal health coverage.
Today is Worlds AIDS day!
For all those we have cared for over the years, we remember you today and always.
Their race is over but not forgotten .
We honor those who faced the fear and died to help us learn.
Also today we celebrate those who are alive and thriving because of modern medicine.

HIV and AIDS remain a persistent problem for the United States and countries around the world. While great progress has been made in preventing and treating HIV, there is still much to do. The questions in this section provide a broad overview of the effects of HIV and AIDS in the United States and globally.
Do people still die from HIV ?
Yes. In the United States, 6,721 people died from HIV and AIDS in 2014. HIV remains a significant cause of death for certain populations. In 2014, it was the 8th leading cause of death for those aged 25-34 and 9th for those aged 35-44.
Today, an estimated 1.1 million people are living with HIV in the United States. Thanks to better treatments, people with HIV are now living longer—and with a better quality of life—than ever before. If you are living with HIV, it’s important to make choices that keep you healthy and protect others.
Receiving a diagnosis of HIV can be a life-changing event. People can feel many emotions—sadness, hopelessness, and even anger
1.1 million people are living with HIV in the United States. You can only imagine what the number is for Sub-Saharan Africa. Let the progress in medicine and treatment not stop you from continuing to support this population.
