World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day, a time when we are called to remember the 20 million people around the world who have died from HIV/AIDS, dedicate ourselves to reaching out and caring for the 39.4 million currently living with the virus, and renew our commitment to preventing the further spread of this modern-day plague.

by William Smith
