World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day. One of those occasions that you wish you didn’t have to have, but which is important to remember and do something about. 

At  a personal level, it’s a chance for me to recall some lost friends: Kerry, Lance, Eric, Humphrey, Peter, John, Kingsley, Graham, and Neil. I’m sorry that you’re not around with the rest of us today.

Ach, another year. Meanwhile, I have to ask myself WTF are the younger generation doing ignoring the lessons of history?

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
