I attended The National  Black Leadership Commission Conference on  HIV-AIDS  in Washington DC on  February 11, 2009 at Galludet University and time stood still! I simply forgot about this social pandemic that’s ravaging the nation’s capital. Our communities are  facing this problem across the country.The District of Columbia ranks at the top of the list nationally and 22nd in the world. Surprisingly enough, it ‘s continuing to increase!I will not inundate you with any other obvious social ills thats affecting America. I ask that you “share the news that should be news today.”  We  can all begin to eradicate this disease by getting tested. That’s “Reaching Our Highest Point.” Google “The Black Leadership Commision on AIDS” for further information!
