A Diva with a Message

I haven't been blogging much lately but that ends today.  Today is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day and it is a day to use social media to get a message across.  The message is, Get Tested, Get Educated, Talk to Everyone, Protect Yourself, Repeat.

If we think HIV/AIDS is over in the US, we're wrong.  As an example, in the United States, African Americans comprise 46% of all HIV cases, they only comprise 12% of the total population.  We have plenty of work to do here in the US and everyone can and should play a part.

Now I'm going to turn it over to Rae Lewis-Thornton.  She has been living with HIV for a long time and her message is simple, even if it isn't easy.  She is a beautiful Diva, and a real hero of mine.  She'll spend the day using social medical to get her message across.  Check her out.  She is awesome.
