It's Personal, Hiv/Aids Real Stories About Real People: The Day the Ground Fell from Under Me

Front Cover
Author House, Mar 31, 2008 - Education - 104 pages

HIV/AIDS is real and life changing. We have all had moments in our lives where situations or circumstance has caused us to think, how will I ever get over this? Remember as a child when your best friend didnt want to be your friend any more, when you broke up with your first love, you didnt get the grade you expected, or you got fired from your job. You probably felt as if the ground had moved from under your feet and the earth had just gobbled you up. But look at us know, we bounced back and now these are things we laugh about with friends and family. That is not the stories told by individuals in this book; the bounce back was not so easy and laughter with family and friends is not the least bit funny.

Lives and families were altered in some cases beyond repair but each person found the will and spirit to live beyond their wildest imagination. The lost of ground in their lives was replaced by a trampoline and they bounced back. They began to live again. As you read their stories try to remember that they are mothers, sisters, aunts, brother, uncle, children, friends and families of someone who care and cherish their simple but unique existence. I want you to think of your life and remember it is no longer business as usual: Its Personal.
