Inspiring morning watching the ONE Campaign World AIDS Day activities.
Reading Bono’s Op/Ed piece in the New York Times. Here’s an arresting excerpt:
It was the look in their eyes when the nurses gave them the diagnosis — H.I.V.-positive — then said there was no treatment. I saw no anger in their expression. No protest. If anything, just a sort of acquiescence.
The anger came from the nurses, who knew there really was a treatment — just not for poor people in poor countries. They saw the absurdity in the fact that an accident of geography would deny their patients the two little pills a day that could save their lives.
We’ve come so far, particularly in this past decade. Now it’s time to end it.
What a way to start advent. Come Lord Jesus.
