The Reason Why We Have AIDS Service Organizations

Posted December 11, 2012 by

I just returned from doing another talk to a small group of 13-15 yr olds. The questions they asked following certainly indicated to me that they were listening rather intently. This is exactly what I love to see, as it means it's become an educational tool for sure. They will undoubtedly take this information and apply it in a variety of ways to further educate themselves and others. They were just finishing up lunch when we arrived and it smelt like we walked into a restaurant not a church. They have their own form of a cooking group, and the minister strives to educate around all means of sexuality and sensuality as part of their curriculum. My hat is off to all of them that attended and showed such respect and interest in a non-judgmental way.

I want to thank all of you who came out to Wrap It Up last night, it was truly a success, or should I say yet another true success. I hope this event will flourish in years to come, and I want to say as both a PHA and staff member with the organization, I'm utterly in awe with respect to being part of this agency’s 25th anniversary. Everyone has worked above and beyond their expectations of organizing themselves to ensure developing success. Let us not lose compassion as we enter into what may appear as year 1 after such a high, but to remember the 25 years we have under our belt.

I’d also like to take this time to wish everyone a very wonderful holiday!!!

Many thanks to everyone!
