World AIDS Day

December 1st is known worldwide as World AIDS Day and this year the celebrations are bigger and better than ever. With the spread of social networking and the internet as it is, the World AIDS Day message has spread far and wind. Even reaching me here, in damn South Carolina of all places. I did say, "WORLD" AIDS Day. The individual country backing of this day is phenomenal. The movement has so much support as people are learning more about this deadly virus.

I'm no doctor, but I think I have the basics down. AIDS is a STD (sexually transmitted disease) that originates from the HIV virus.? I'm not sure of the mechanics involved, but it shuts down your body. Luckily  since 1988 when the first World AIDS Day was helped spread the message of safe sexual practice and routine screenings. There is an estimated 15 million people worldwide that are currently suffering from HIV/AIDS.

Please, stay conscious of your physical and sexual health. Use a condom and see your doctor. Men, women, young, old, gay, straight or bi... this message is for everyone. It CAN happen to you. Don't be naive and leave yourself vulnerable.

God Bless.
