I have been ill for several weeks and in and out of doctor's offices. During this time, my intuitive senses have been running on high, and I've awoken many times to sounds and sights unfamiliar to me in the context of this world. Although it is difficult for me to describe or even admit, I have been visited by past relatives and seen visions of my own passing. As time went on, these visions continued and ultimately I was met in the middle of the night by a child-like angel, wearing a red robe, who summoned me to follow her to lead in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Although I am not familiar with this illness nor have I been diagnosed with it, she led me to believe that I will be soon. Because I'm not in any of the "risk groups" for this disease, this is confounding to me and my doctors. The reason for my getting sick, I was told, is that I would be better accepted by society as being just a regular person; husband, father, firefighter and not as easily stigmatized as the people we all think of in terms of acquiring this awful disease. The angel also made me aware that this illness occurs in children born to it and through no fault of their own...this is a difficult reality. I believe whole-heartedly in my angel in red and I also believe that together we can find a cure for this leper's disease. Please pray for children everywhere who are affected by HIV/AIDS...together we can make a difference!
