Have U Hugged a Person With AIDS Today? If I Were diagnosed with HIV I would: climb a mountain, hang with friends, maybe just smell the flowers. I would think about living not dying. I have Aids. Don’t run away I have feelings too… If I Or my family has AIDS then I can’t help it . All I can do is live my life to it’s fullest extent with the best of my abilities. The best I can do is take care of my self and family I did this poster about AIDS because I want to get through to the ignerant [sic: ignorant] people. Who think you can get AIDS from mosquito bites. AIDS AIDS does not discriminate don’t think you’re immune. Please protect yourself. Abstinence is the safest way to protect yourself, but there are other ways. Like Condoms. Aids is out of control people these days don’t care enough about their own lives to take control I think its hard to face the fact that some thing which can make you feel so good can turn around and kill you.
