World AIDS Day - one quilt

December 1 is World AIDS Day. Forty million people worldwide are living with HIV. Check out the USAToday article and slide show featuring the AIDS Memorial Quilt - remember when it was on display in DC ten years ago? The AIDS Memorial Quilt is now 54 tons heavy - honoring more than 40,000.

The Atlanta Constitution has an article about the quilt with this photo of 46-year-old cosmetologist Kimberly Jackson's panel made for her friend and client, Dr. Wandra Jones-Phillips, who passed away in 2001.

So important...especially since it is affecting so many Africans and African Americans. I'm wearing a red shirt today in memory of my cousin, who passed away from it in 1999.
