"Care for us and accept us - we are all human beings. We are normal. We have hands. We have feet. We can walk, we can talk, we have needs just like everyone else. Don't be afraid of us - we are all the same."

n memory of Nkosi Johnson and all the children that have died of aids...

Nkosi Johnson was South Africa's longest surviving child born HIV positive. He died at 5.40am on Friday, 1 June. His life was characterised by his brave fight for the rights of the HIV positive.

In July 2000, this slight child with the soulful eyes and full-blown Aids, captured the hearts of millions of TV viewers, when his address at the 13th International Aids Conference in Durban, South Africa, was televised worldwide. In a speech that he wrote himself, the then 11-year Nkosi spoke frankly to delegates about his experiences with HIV and about the issues surrounding Aids in South Africa.

Wow. This is beautiful. I wish I lived in SA so that I could have some made for my friend and his office (he works at Nashville CARES, our HIV/AIDS agency). I read a book about Nkosi in 2005 before visiting SA.

Your work is beyond amazing. Do you have another web site?
