Recently I was with a man, who I’ve known for years, who has been fighting the scourge of AIDS for decades.His KS ( Kaposi’s sarcoma) is back, phase five of meds aren’t working any longer and he’s gotta come up with $15,000.00 for meds and unpaid expenses-What did he do while we were shooting the breeze??He walked across the room returning to hand me a sparkling new hundred dollar bill. He told me it was a donation in support of my HIV/AIDS Care Teams-As I was about to object, knowing his financial situation, I remembered the old adage,"Never Destroy a Generous Impulse."I accepted it with as much grace as I could muster, as I was temporarily rocked back on my pins.
