Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Thursday December 1, 2016 is World AIDS Day. "There is a disease that reached out into the world and changed the way we thought about everything, from how we got our blood transfusions to our sexual practices. It was met with a campaign of fear and superstition that harmed both those who had it, and the families and friends of those who surrounded them. While HIV and AIDS are out in the world today, the horror stories that were told of how it works and how it was transmitted have largely been mitigated. This day works to ensure that those who suffer from AIDS can live in a safer, more understanding world & help further research to eliminate it. World AIDS Day was first held in 1988, just four years after the discovery of the virus and its official classification. Since that time 35 million people have died, putting it far ahead of many of the other most devastating diseases in the history of man. Since that day the work of men and women everywhere has led to a greater understanding of HIV/AIDS (you can’t get it by sharing a can of coke, or sharing a toilet seat, for instance), but that has only served to slow the tide. There are still people out there who don’t know all the facts about it. So, educate yourself about AIDS on websites like Worldaidsday.org , and then start researching what you can do to help. Whether it’s a small donation, or volunteering your time. That’s as worthwhile as helping to end the epidemic that is HIV/AIDS. You can also wear a red ribbon on World AIDS Day to help spread awareness of the disease, and hand out red ribbons to your friends, co-workers, and family to help them spread the word as well. It’s important that everyone understand the dangers of HIV/AIDS, and just as important that they understand how it’s contracted. Not just as a way to avoid contracting it, but to reduce the fear that surrounds this horrible condition." ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year' . #worldaidsday #world #aids #worldaids #fit #follow #like #concern #twitter #buffer #lpt #linkinbio #tagsforlike #wp #fb #blog #ig #insta #tweet #pop #educate #research #awareness #understanding . @instagram @sharpharmade
