Watching death in South Africa

>>  The plague years (from the blog “Letting Go”)

I came across this melancholy, meditative post yesterday, and wanted to pass the link along.  Writing about her own experience, the South African author provides a gritty but beautifully-written look at what it’s like to live in one of the world’s HIV/AIDS hotspots.

Later in the article, the author focuses on the tragedy wrought by AIDS denialism at the highest levels of South African government, which is only now beginning to be dispelled.

  1. I went to the original site where the blog came from. I will get the author’s permission. Thank you for posting, though.
