world aids day.png

Each year, we recognize World AIDS Day on December 1. World AIDS Day is an opportunity for people around the globe to unite in the fight against HIV and AIDS and remember those who have succumbed to the virus. Since 1988, World AIDS Day has been recognized around the globe.

In all, more than 35 million people have died of HIV or AIDS, and millions more live with the HIV virus. World AIDS Day is an opportunity to wear a red ribbon, make sure you know how to protect yourself against HIV, and learn more about the history of HIV/AIDS and progress that has been made in fighting the epidemic.

    Hmmm... This is certainly the first time I've seen a day set aside to recognize a disease. I agree that it requires respect and thought. I respect all the people who have died of AIDS, and hope that the people who are fighting it (and so many other illnesses) may continue to battle this terrible disease.

  37. Jesse-Khalifa

    It's nice that your recognizing this day.


    Nice post, I was the 140th person to high five it. How come Quizlet got rid of the high fives on all of our personal sets? The new update on how the sets looks is cool and I like the solid fonts and refreshing colors, but.... I hope Quizlet is thinking about putting the high five backs as seen as they're still on the Quizlet blog. :)
