World AIDS Day is very important to me, and my staff knows that. It really goes back to an experience that I had when I was ambassador to Tanzania. My father is a retired physician, and he had been practicing medicine back in my home place for 60 years. He came to visit me to Tanzania, and I asked him if he would come with me on a project. And on the project, we were delivering food to AIDS widows, AIDS shut-ins, so people who were isolated and at home and completely dependent upon donations for food.
