Prayer on World AIDS Day

image

I give thanks for the ones who survived.

I give thanks for those I loved and are gone.

I remember the light in your eyes and the joy you took in living and loving.

I pray another generation does not have to learn the pain we felt.

I pray for medicines and a cure that all can afford.

I pray to always remember the sweetness of your hugs.

I pray that someday World AIDS Day is a memory and not a reality.

I pray that people remember how to stop it from spreading and killing.

I hope someday not to have to remember.

I pray for hope.
