A'isha.... Please let me know when you have the petition in place and post the link.... I will put it out as much as possible.... and will also have some friends pass it along as well.... You did a great job!!!
Love & Light
OK!! just wanted to make sure everyone was in agreement with it--once we collect enough signatures we can send it to the appropriate place-I will try to combine both petition and the proposal-wish me luck! lolol..and then will need your help sis in putting it on a url??? not sure how that works! But want to keep it pinned here as well...
Although, anything governments can do for their people in regards to AIDS PANDEMIC is note worthy and I personally appreciate;
could it be (in agreement with petitions regard/importance) if folks think its being done for them (managing AIDS/HIV vigilance/ guarding THEMSELVES against) will folks drop their self preservation in terms of sexually transmitted diseases???
If I had a place I could go to to investigate a potential sexual liaison would I? Maybe this will make condoms seem SO SPONTANIOUS!
I knew I was into high risk behavior as far as my playgrounds were concerned. Though I was ever so over protective of myself and my partner_s.Not bragging I played around in high risk company.
I think if we as a whole , especially women some of the time, thought better of ourselves, we all wouldn't be subjected to fly by night relationships, or just relating to another through SEX alone.
Perhaps these states are groping at straws in terms of AIDS/HIV. As if saying " Well na na if you get into AIDS/ HIV here were going to TELL ON YOU!" I don't think it'll fly. BUT, BUT, I do recognize the need for some kind of concern towards AWARENESS! Its weird that These states knee jerk reaction isn't condom usage promotion! You know like SAFE SEX LAST LONGER!
I mean HIV?AIDS is here and its not easy to live with that alone should be enough of a deterrent! Like, hey SEX causes CANCER!! And it does and not only enclosed but STDS such as Human Papilloma VIRUS. You see, sex can be a very subtle foe in life, look what happened to Bill Clinton!
What ever I maybe beginning to ramble. You know I'm a hunt and peck typist any how.
Just like CAre2 we are concerned for the environment and all, we have to be careful with ourselves and others. Treat our time here a little more seriously. Lovingly , open minded, and all inclusive. I hope we can make a difference with our collective candles ("this lil light of mine"'s). Because I agree this "na na na" i.q. is the best way.
A'isha... Yes still looks great... I am having some problems with my computer, but I will call you so we can talk about putting it all together and getting the petition out....
Love & Light
