International Aids Awareness Day

 

Today is International Aids Awareness Day. How did you spend it? We spent it with a group of Hindus, Muslims, Christians and Buddhists to make a statement. Many of us wore T-shirts that said, “I’m peacemaker”. These young people have gone to many “Peace Camps” together and are looking for ways to work together to help the world be a better place.  We left the house in twos and threes on motorbikes with backpacks full of apples and red ribbons to give away. The theme of the day was “STOP the stigma and discrimination”. The theme of their lives includes “We want to work together to help the world be a better place.” Afterwards we ate together in the park and will come back together tonight for a party at the community centre. What a GREAT DAY!
