Thought for Today:

The prejudice surrounding AIDS exacts a social death which precedes the actual physical one.
对艾滋病的偏见首先杀死的是人们的精神,然后才是人们的身体。

Today's Highlight in History:

1959:The first color photograph of Earth received from outer space on December 1.
1959年12月1日,太空传回第一张彩色的地球照片。

1988: World AIDS Day is commemorated around the globe on 1 December every year. World AIDS Day is not just about raising money, but also about increasing awareness, education and fighting prejudice. There are 38 million adults and 2.3 million children living with HIV, and during 2005 some 4.9 million people became newly infected with the virus.It is important in reminding people that HIV has not gone away, and that there are many things still to be done.
1988年开始,每年的12月1日是世界艾滋病日。世界艾滋病日不仅是为了艾滋病患者集资,同时要提高人们对艾滋病的认识,反对对艾滋病人的歧视。现在世界上有三千八百万的成年人和二百三十万儿童患有艾滋病,并且在2005年中,又有四百九十万人新感染了。因此这一天最重要的意义是提醒人们艾滋病还没有消失,我们仍然还有很多事情要做。
