The Faces Of Aids
Although we may not personally recognize their faces, they are the faces of our neighbors, family, and friends. They come from all walks of life and all lifestyles, including our own. They are a picture of every ethnicity and culture, just like us. They share many of our same thoughts and perspectives, connecting with us. They are no longer they, but us.

All 6 believed that AIDS happened to someone else. All 6 believed that AIDS happened somewhere else. All 6 were aware of the AIDS virus. All 6 believed they knew how AIDS was contracted. All 6 knew the consequences of risky behavior. And all 6 are HIV positive.
