For Better or for Worse: A Blog Entry by Rev. Andrena Ingram (June 2, 2013)
"I am angry at you for not being here to help me. I can't say for certain, but I suppose a part of your son is angry at you as well -- as he watches his mother fight and medicate. Why couldn't, why wouldn't you do the same?"
Life Is a Death Sentence: A Blog Entry by Brooke Davidoff (March 20, 2013)

The Sight of Death: A Blog Entry by Shana Cozad (October 5, 2012)

HIV and Death ... In Memory of Dr. Bob: A Blog Entry by Ibrahim (October 14, 2011)
"Some even went too far to state: How could [Dr. Bob] die when he himself was an HIV specialist? Or did he miss the math when he said that an HIV-positive person can live as normal a life as any other HIV-negative person? Well Dr. Bob certainly did not live a life as normal as many other HIV-negative persons. He lived a better life, filled with giving away hope and love to those who needed it most."
