Today (December 1) is World AIDS Day. I'd like to take a moment to remember all those who have been affected by HIV/AIDS and remember those we've lost, especially my fourth grade teacher Mr. Thomas Driscoll.

During this holiday season and all year round, help those with HIV/AIDS and in finding a cure by supporting your favorite HIV/AIDS charity. Mine is Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS which helps bring resources to those with and affected by HIV/AIDS across the United States.
