    I find it unforgivable that we live in the riches country in the world, and yet people are still dieing from this unrelenting illness, that has proven treatments to combat this horrible disease. “WE” the human race have put a man on the moon! Here in America we can bomb people across the glob in the blink of an eye. However, we can not come up with the money, time , and moral conscious to address the problem and scope of this disease. I am HIV + ,and I have been on a waiting list for over a year to get the medication that I need for my illness; in the Sovereign State of South Carolina. I have come to the conclusion that I live in a unforgiving selfish world that would rather invest money in bomb’s than babies, and the corporate bottom line, mean’s more than peoples lives. I pray and beg for sanity to be restored to those in power that can make a difference.
