World AIDS Day,2017

Not just for this day but all days,
not just for one country but all countries,
not just for children but for all ages,
all gender identities, all sexual orientations,
all countries rich or poor
not just a red ribbon on it,
but changing the heart of the world.

To honor the memory of those who have died,
to offer safety to those not yet born,
to love those who are struggling now,
to affirm those who are managing their lives …

let it never be said
I was Emmanuel
HIV positive
and you forgot me;
I was Emmanuel with AIDS
and you turned from me.
