Your Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words: A Day With HIV in America
By Richard Cordova III
September 14, 2011
I know I have been absent from the blogging scene. I'll be honest, I have had a bit of a writer's block, so to speak. I am in awe of bloggers who are able to post so often!
That being said, I do want to share a very timely blog piece with you. There is an annual event that is called "A Day With HIV in America" and if you're reading this, I'd like you to take part. The premise is simple. We are all affected by HIV, whether we are negative or positive. On Wednesday, September 21, grab your camera or smartphone and take a picture of you and your everyday life.
I'll be taking part in this special event and I hope that you will join me! Not only that, it would be great if you shared this event with your friends. Post it on Facebook and Twitter.
I've got some other ideas for blog pieces and I hope to share them with you soon but until then, be well and live with intention.

Richard finds a positive attitude and a sense of humor to be two of his most powerful weapons in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Richard is the Director of Athletic Events at TPAN, and teaches Spinning classes at a local gym in Chicago. He also answers questions on TheBody.com's "Ask the Experts" forum on Safe Sex and HIV Prevention.
He enjoys talking about himself in the third person (on occasions like these) and finding new and exciting ways to be healthier physically, emotionally, and spiritually. He has been living with HIV since 2002. Diagnosed with 123 T-cells, he is technically by government standards not HIV positive, but in fact a person living with AIDS. To that he says HA!
