Done

Well, hello there. Again.

Hmm, so what do I want to say. Let me think.

How about the fact that I forgot about gratitude Saturday? This is going to take some time, you know, the whole gratitude business.

You all mean a lot to me. Shit, I wrote a novel with all of you. Didn’t I?

You might believe it is the person’s fault, after all, you know the only way to HIV/AIDS is by being unfaithful, so maybe it is God’s way of punishing the unfaithful and dishonest people. You might not be wrong, I guess. But, um, uh I had something, I, uh, believe me, I had something to say about that. Seems like you will be right after all. It is the fault of the person who got HIV/AIDS.

But what about the wife of an infected husband or the husband of an infected wife or forget that. What about the children born to infected parents? Are they being punished by association? What kind of justice is that?
