    I been HIV positive, since 1995. I came out in 1997,beause I became ill and had to be put in the hospital. The doctor told my family that I had only eighteen months to live. But I am still here by the grace of God. I will be giving a program in my community about Awareness in March. I have to be the voice for my brother and sister that are afraid, because of so much stigam still. But I tell them the people that talk don’t have a heaven of hell to send me. God love me for who I am am, when man can’t forget your pass. God can. We have a forgiven God. I don’t think I am better than anyone but I know I am just as good, and life go on. If truth was to be told we all have skeletons in our closet.
