I have to say Peggy's thoughts and feelings on HIV/AIDS and what t means in the USA really REALLY got me thinking.
I have never tested positive for HIV, I don't think I know anyone who has, either.
Never the less, while reading 'the assualt on freedom of conscience' I was reminded of the cover that featured Christine Maggiore several years ago. I saw that cover in line at WF way before I was a mom, or thought of being one, before I read Mothering magazine. But the cover stuck in my mind, it seemed revolutionary to me that people were questioning AIDS and that a magazine was covering this.
Anyway, looking forward to now, reading that and being reminded of how that cover made me feel, I started to look into AIDS/HIV this month and ordered Christine's book and also 'Inventing the AIDS virus' and have finished Christine's book and started the other last night.
I am absolutely convinved that there is more to the AIDS story than we have been told. I know now that HIV does not = AIDS does not = death. And that is so cool to know, but so sad that most people will never hear the truth.
Thank you, Peggy, for not being scared to talk about the truth, no matter what. Please keep it up, it is appreciated!!!!!!!!!!
