World AIDS Day
Today is the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day and I hope you will join me in thinking for a moment about my sweet brother and the 25 million people worldwide who have died from AIDS. More than half a million people diagnosed with AIDS have died in the USA alone. Some 60 percent of these people did not live to the age of 45. Dan was 41.

Our oldest brother's daughter, Brooke is involved in this LA-based nonprofit that helps care for African children affected by AIDS. You can help.

Still, it hurts here at home. I don't know what to tell you. Just, keep your heart open to people who are hurting, even if they are different from you.
