Reading Tell the Wolves I'm Home, brings the topic of AIDS to the front of my thoughts, where it has not been for a long time. It was such an explosion in the eighties and nineties, and then it seemed to be placed on the back burner. Its significant has not lessened any, certainly not in third world countries like Africa. The people who are affected by it here in America, go through as much pain and suffering as one does with Cancer, but through education and knowledge, it has not spread the way it did when it first came here, and was an unknown entity. It is still a very real disease, and if people do not take precautions, it can spread like wildfire as we have witnessed here, and in other countries.
