Deep Gratitude

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.      -- Albert Schweitzer

The day my brother told me he had AIDS was devastating. The day he died changed my life. I like to think his spark led me to pick up a bicycle but it was each of you who fanned the flame in me and in HIV/AIDS labs nationwide that ignite hope in countless people affected by HIV/AIDS. Thank you for replacing my grief on this and every day with such deep, deep gratitude and exhilarating hope for an AIDS-free world.
