My take on AIDs stigmatism.

I am not sure which side of the bed i woke up on, i guess it must have been in the middle. And i have been sitting here for 4 hours thinking of what to jot down in these tough times on this 5th day of the #bloggerschallenge. Then it occured to me, many people especially children are mistreated, ignored and leftout because they are sick. Suffering from a disease that everyone believes came from hell, and surely, many people have made it their job to see these kids living in a place similar to hell. Is this the time when man judges fellow man?

It is really saddening, how a young boy is refused to go to school because he is an HIV/AIDS victim. No one really chooses to become a victim of disease, knowingly or unknowingly. Unfortunately, some people choose to act God. Many AIDS victims have failed to acquire jobs even when fully qualified, many have been denied visas, many have been thrown out of school, many have been denied food at home, many have been laughed at, many have been ignored, yet they are all humans.

This harrasment and mistreatment of AIDS victims is one of the supreme reasons as to why many of the victims are so much willing And are actually, enjoying the spread of the virus by spreading it to others who are HIV negative. Because of frustration and hatred bottled up in the victim’s heart, he/she makes it a role to spread the disease to as many people as he/she can. (That’s my analysis). What do you think?

The Bible emphasises ‘ do unto others what you would have them do unto you.’ Would you like to be dropped on the street,laughed at, made fun of, isolated, thrown out of school, mistreated, harrased, like you came from hell, yet its a place like hell that you are living in? I guess not, let’s join the fight against HIV/AIDs stigmatism and spread in Africa. Putting in mind the words that our brother, Philly Bongole Lutaaya sang with love amidst all circumstances of his life, in his song, ” alone.”

out there somewhere, alone and frightened, of the darkness, the days are long.

Life hiding, no more making new contacts. No more loving arms, thrown around my neck. Take my hand now, I am tired and lonely. Give me love, give me hope. Don’t desert me, don’t reject me. All I need is love and understanding,” he sang
