I was reading many of these outloud to my mother until I got to the one with Princess Diana. I choked up and had to stop reading.
My cousin is HIV positive. He has been since 1989-1990. He is the reason I am vocal about HIV/AIDS prevention/treatment and about GLBT issues. Reading these doesn't bring the issue closer to my heart, as it's already nearly as close as it can be, but it does make me somber.
