December 1

This day, this moment, it is necessary.

It serves a purpose.

A reminder to those living with HIV of another milestone reached, a hallmark of good health and the will to live

A check for the reinforcement of support from the network of those who love them

A notation on the world schedule in this enduring interlude between humanity and the vastly unseen world of that which seeks to bring it down on its knees

This day, this moment, it is necessary

It reminds us to believe – in life, in love, and a great many endless possibilities.

It’s the first day of December.

It’s the International World AIDS Day.
