Name: Sandra       Birth Date: 1960 Title: Faith, Hope & Courage     HIV Diagnosis: Unknown My faith carried me through when the darkness of this disease took over my body. It was like hiding under a tree and that was not enough. The telephone did not stop ringing. You could have just sawed me in half, put me up for sale. But nobody wanted me. After you sawed me in half - to make sure I was dead - unloaded the bullets in me until the gun was empty. My lips on my face were so big. I could not tell you enough. Until one day I remembered that the Lord loves me. No matter what, He thinks I am a rose and when all else fails I can always pray or read the instructions.

The black gown represents the dark feelings. But in the front you see all the good things I still have or can look to for happiness. You can look forward to...the holidays at home with your kids and family...a fishing trip...walking the dog...counting the start...calling your friends or a counsellor...keep your heart open to love...smell the roses. Just live and love life.  African American -Houston, TX             ID: ST-TXZ-UN-0272
Name: Amy       Birth Date: 1969 Title: Grace     HIV Diagnosis: Unknown HIV has given me the ability or tools to see life in a different light. To see that the things that are important are stopping to smell the flowers, staying strong, finding support, remembering family and friends, work hard for what you want, and always show love. I know everyone's journey with HIV is a special story and so I have shared mine through the years. I have learned the key to life is a positive attitude, faith and God as your foundation.
