World's AIDS Day 2008
20 years has passed since the International Minister of Health Conference declared the 1st of December as the World’s AIDS Day. And all of those time, many casualties has fallen very rapidly year after year, yet we still have not found the medicament which could cure the disease.
We are fully aware that the root of the disease is our own inability to control our own temptations i.e. Free Sex, Drug abuse, however many of us refused to resist those temptations. In our effort to stop or minimize the disease, we have alienated the victims of the disease, and treat potential victims i.e. drug addicts as Criminals, result of which is contradictory to what we planed.
The theme for World's AIDS Day 2007 and 2008 is TAKE THE LEAD. Therefore, let us start to take the lead to do anything that would minimize the spread of HIV/AIDS, as follows:
1) Boost our faith in God
2) Live & Love healthily
3) Avoid changing sexual partners
4) Practice safe sexual intercourse
5) Do not share the use of needle for drugs
Although these actions are much easier said than done, but we have to start now.
GOD BLESS INDONESIA!
