World AIDS Day 2014

World AIDS Day 2014

This afternoon I made my way down to the Parson’s Center to view the AIDS Memorial Quilt. It’s hard to describe the effect the quilt can have on you, but when you see it for yourself you know. It left me speechless.

I was lucky to view the quilt during a quiet time at Parson’s and felt no need to rush through. Reading each panel is an experience I’ll cherish all my life.

Tonight was also the Phoenix AIDS Candlelight Vigil. The committee that put this event together is a panel of champions. Their hard work and meticulous planning paid off big time, as the event went off without a hitch.

From the impeccably ordered playlist to the energizing and heart-felt speeches, the message I took away from the Vigil was one of hope through community. Together, we will end AIDS.

See you next year.
