Im Angry

When I heard Paul Hyman say over & over again "I'm Angry" during his Wilton Manors World AIDS day talk, I took it to be about ignorance & stigma. Heck, even Jackie Chan said it "Stigma hurts. Because of AIDS, children are bullied, isolated and shut out of school. They are missing out on education. They are missing out on medicines. Children are missing your love, care and protection. Join me. And become a stigma buster. UNITE FOR CHILDREN UNITE AGAINST AIDS" 

A few days ago I read about a 13 yr old young man who is being refused entry to a school in Hershey PA because not just HIV + but "may have sex" with other children and they, the school board don't want any communicable disease in the schools

Like Paul, I AM ANGRY!  I've been to Cicero, IN and stood by Ryan Whites grave. Heard his mom speak any number of times and gosh darn it how has this school not heard? 

Founded in 1909 by chocolate maker Milton Hershey, the school educates low-income and socially disadvantaged students for free. It is financed by the Milton Hershey School Trust, which also holds the controlling interest in The Hershey Co.

Looks like the only Kisses you'll be getting from me from here on in wont be chocolate ones wrapped in tin foil.
