Reminded by something I saw this morning on line, I thought we might go to the AIDS Tree lighting Ceremony in Hillcrest tonight. Only when I got to the site did I wake to the fact that the Ceremony for 2020 is to be virtual. Wake is the word. I took another gulp of coffee and saw that 2019’s Tree Lighting was face to face.

“Mama’s Kitchen,” runs this affair and has for 30 years. They hope you will put a name in a hang-on-the-tree heart or buy one of their wonderful pies. They no longer just feed the AIDS community, but those who are sick with cancer can get meals from Mama’s too.

We will buy a heart later today to remember my friend Dale, and we will go to the virtual ceremony also. I’m awake now, and I won’t forget.

It seems unreal to me that it has been 30 years+. So many good people gone. And they are still working on it. I am sorry for the loss of your friend. I have been lucky enough not to have lost any of mine to AIDS.

Treatment for AIDS and HIV is so much improved that it’s diminished in people’s minds - thankfully . However it was the first plague in our lifetimes .
