I Care About AIDS (An Affirmation)

I care about AIDS.

I care because several dear friends of mine died from AIDS.
I care because there are children that will lose their parents because of AIDS.
I care because there are people that can't afford medicine to treat AIDS.
I care because Jesus said, "Love your neighbor."

What can I do about AIDS?

I can wear the red AIDS ribbon to raise awareness.
I can attend an interfaith service of hope for those affected by AIDS.
I can donate money to AIDS charities.
I can bring extra food this Sunday to help Doorways.*
I can learn more about AIDS
I can take some time this Saturday to stop and pray for those who have AIDS.
I can pray for those who have lost their child to AIDS.

I care, do you?
