Dab Garner's 30-Year Story of Survival
A Video Blog

By Mark S. King

June 17, 2011

Storytelling is a crucial part of our culture, and not simply for entertainment value. Sharing our stories can heal our pain, educate others, and help us relive our happiest triumphs.

This video is quite simple, really. One man explains to you what happened to him, from becoming one of the first AIDS patients in San Francisco to his life today in the service of others with HIV. Dab Garner has clearly put things into perspective, and his calm manner shows a man at peace with his fate, his survival, and the ghosts around him.


Episode 33: Dab Garner's 30-Year Story of Survival

It's an amazing story, actually. And considering the importance of passing our history down to younger people, it might not be a bad idea to share this video with someone you know, maybe even someone under 35 years old.

But for now, let's let Dab Garner simply speak for himself.

Thanks for watching, and please be well.
