Feeling sorry for myself as I am so sick I am housebound, I began to look for a picture to depict my misery. I ran across this website
It is about 25 million people dying in a generation, even a shorter span than a generation. It is about war when people need medicine. It is about suffering that I will never know.
In November I was supposed to travel to South Africa with some friends with the goal of seeing this crisis first hand and coming back to the U.S. with a message. I backed out because my health has been so crappy. I backed out and it makes me feel really bad about it.
