When I surfed through a

When I surfed through a few of my blogs I found some that were honoring a Day Without Weblogs. Although I haven’t known family members or friends who have died from AIDS, I’ll share what I think of on this day. The most I know about AIDS is really from TV shows. Mainly, General Hospital, which told the tale of Robin and Stone:
from: General Hospital Yearly Summaries

Robin’s boyfriend, Stone Cates, had come down with the flu. As Robin nursed him with chicken soup, he convinced her she should go to Yale. Stone assured Robin he’d been tested and was HIV negative. They made love for the first time. Mac was furious when he found out, but he came to realize he had to let Robin grow up.
When Stone could not shake the flu, tests revealed the worst possible news. Stone was HIV positive. Stone couldn’t bring himself to reveal the deeply tragic news to Robin.
During a gang attack, Stone took a bullet in the leg. He screamed when he saw his blood on Robin and ran away! Robin found the wounded Stone in the motel where they’d first made love. He revealed the terrible news that he was HIV positive. Dr. Alan Quartermaine discovered that Stone had already developed full-blown AIDS.
Robin came down with a flu. She received the terrible news that she was HIV positive.
Family and friends, both near and far, showered Robin with love and compassion as Stone passed away.
Very sad story - I went home from school every day that this was going on, knowing that we’d cry. If you’d like pictures and the words to When Angels Cry, the song which was Robin and Stone’s theme song, check out GHjen’s Robin & Stone Page
