Never say die

lNGOs, Activists, advocates, HIV/AIDS.

“To withdraw from fire means what you were preparing is ready.”

In the midst of criticism, skepticism, cynical perceptions and negative remarks towards those HIV/AIDS advocates and activists, should non governmental organizations (NGOs), faith based organizations (FBOs), and orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) stop the work they are doing because these armchair critics who are, but contributing nothing to the lives of the sufferers a part from adding insults to the already injured people? Should people just quit and abandon the fight against AIDS just because some individuals feel that nothing is being done and those involved in the campaign are just bent on enriching themselves and not necessarily helping the HIV/AIDS patients? No, I think that HIV/AIDS advocates and activists must carry on with their tasks of helping the patients. The work has continued to be medicine itself to those infected. However, it is also true that there are some people who entirely rely on HIV/AIDS to be their employer because of the availability and viability the project seem to have. However, instead of turning down every constructive criticism, and getting discouraged by these wet blanket, it is important for those involved in HIV/AIDS work to re-examine themselves and make sure that they continue to push on with more zeal and disease will continue to devastate many lives of the people. Until the disease is eliminated or completely annihilated will we say: well done and stop the AIDS work, but as long as we remain with no cure, we shall continue to rely on the services of these people.

About the author or the publisher
What is true love if one may ask? Is it only about kissing each other in public places, is it holding each other’s hand when walking, is it about opening doors of the car to each other, is it about sitting next to each other and patting each other’s back (even if you are in church where you are required to concentrate on God!), is it all about expressing one’s feelings by giving flowers and those cards full words that one hardly means (in a long term relationship at least)? Should we limit true love to these things only?

No! Of course not. Though some of these things earlier mentioned may be some expressions of love, true love resides in the heart of an individual. My argument is if you check the divorce rate for these countries where the so called “true love” is, you will be shocked to learn that there is no love at all. Marriages are contracts not permanent institutions any longer. Some may argue that African women don’t enjoy marriage life but they just endure in there (shipikisha club). Whichever the case could be, for them (African women) to endure in those marriages, it means they have learned over the years good conflict resolution skills.

However, let us look at the HIV/AIDS situation in marriages. Should couples file in for divorce because his/her spouse is HIV/AIDS positive or they should continue living together when we know that the risk of contracting HIC virus even by using the condom is quite high? It is interesting to note that many Africans especially women have hanged in there on the basis of “for better for worse vow”. Yes, lovers ought to share a Nsole in all situations
