HIV Cure: Have You Grown More Hopeful?


Reggie Smith

Reggie Smith

Atlanta; Diagnosed in 1984

As time passes, I have more hope that a cure is biologically possible and will be found.  I know, though, that in order for a cure to be effective, it will take more than science for it to work in the human species.  I submit that we have reached a stalemate with the HIV retrovirus right now, but much like the story of the Wizard of Oz teaches us, the things we are seeking are inside us and have been there all the time.  How many times have we seen loved ones perish as a result of fear or lack of courage, negative thinking, or because they got little or no compassion and love from others?  I have more hope because more of us now realize that love overcomes fear and heals us all.
