Happy Birthday, Grandma!

Its an amazing day today.

Despite my lack of experience (in anything!), not much amazes me anymore.

But this does.

My Grandma turned 71 today. She's old.

Sometimes, when I'm bored, I think about stuff, like the makeup of the earth, the ozone layer, random stuff. Tonight, I thought about what my Grandma has done & seen in those 71 years.

Did you know she's met the Pope?

And hosted a party for Lady Di?

Did you know she was in East Germany when the Berlin Wall was still up?

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, my Grandma is a wonderwoman. Even at this age, she's still working, she still takes care of this mammoth house, but she doesn't cook anymore. She looks 20 years younger than her age, and the only thing that has you realising her age is her limp.

A limp. The only sign of her age.

And she's still going strong. At 71. When most people have resigned to a life of a vegetable.

Happy Birthday, Grandma! I love you more than the endless bounds of the universe, and you know it! May the Lord bless you forever!

World AIDS Day 2009

Good Morning, people!

I'd like to wish all of you a Happy & Merry World AIDS day 2009. On this wonderful & beautiful day, I'd like all of you reading this to stop viewing HIV/AIDS as a taboo. Its just as bad as H1N1, the common flu, and SARS, maybe even less so. But the stigma associated with it... the assumption that anyone with HIV/AIDS is either promiscuous or a druggie. Sometimes, the victims aren't.


But even if they are, who cares? Pretty sure they aren't now.

They need you. They need your love, your care, your attention. They need you now more than ever. Now is the time to extend that helping hand, not shun them from society. NOW.

Happy World AIDS Day, all.
