“The Gift Of Quality Time” on Morning Energy

“Sometimes crisis triggers the genius within.”
More than 40 years ago the first AIDS case was reported to the Center for Disease Control. And since that time, more than half a million people in the United States (U.S.) have died from this epidemic.  By the end of 2021, an estimated 1.2 million people in the U.S. were reported as having AIDS, and in 2022 nearly 39 million people were reported to have the HIV virus.

Since 1988, December 1st has been designated as WORLD AIDS DAY.  On this day there is increased awareness about this ongoing crisis.  This day also serves as an opportunity to stand in solidarity with people around the world that are affected by HIV.

Despite all of the progress that have been made in prevention and treatment, one of the main lessons that the AIDS and HIV has taught us is that how one deals with crises matters having political involvement oftentimes can help to fund, support prevention, and provide people with access to proper health care.

On Morning Energy we are going to spend time exploring the lessons that we have learned from the AIDS crisis as well as lessons that we can learn when dealing with various other crises  in our lives.
