At the RESULTS Atlanta screening of How to Survive a Plague for World AIDS Day, a 14-year-old RESULTS volunteer’s son shared this amazing poem calling on Senator Isakson to support funding for the Global Fund. Read it and get inspired!

What can be said that hasn’t been said? What has been done?  What could be done?
What could you do?

Do you wake up in the morning
looking death in the face

Have you seen the spark of life
like leaves dying in autumn

People talk of war as if only guns can cause

and sorrow greater than even the human mind can imagine.

The human mind is infiniteOur abilities are too
So why is it
That we cannot solve one problem
That causes the grief of millions

A problem we the American People have the
and Influence

To rid this world of this malevolent beast
with no mercy nor compassion
Are we so immune to the pain of others
That we feel no concern or even interest

To aid in something more treacherous
That has people begging for death

People who have
and Influence

Should use it for the BETTERMENT of the human race
To show that compassion for afflicted individuals
and their loved ones is not gone

But is burning
like flames of Determination
that will shower the world
with precious gifts of hope and peace

A problem with a solution has been presented to you
and you have the power to stop it.

Senator Isakson, will you fight AIDS?
Please support the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.
