World AIDS Day

"Science has brought the world to the point where the end of AIDS – though not necessarily HIV – is in sight" according to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
And, she added, "It is science that will allow us to finish this job."
The job, she has famously said, is to create an "AIDS-free generation" – something that once seemed like a pipe dream and now, after more than 30 years, seems increasingly possible.
This statement was made just yesterday by my President - Ms. Hilary Clinton, in honor of World AIDS Day December 1, 2012.
In honor of today I am posting an amazing video that was and still is way ahead of it's time and is inclusive of everyone AIDS has touched.
Neneh Cherry's brilliant cover of "I've Got You Under My Skin" by Cole Porter off of the first of it's kind CD to benefit AIDS "Red Hot + Blue" 
"No knowledge of the facts, kept in the dark, Scolds my soul and it hurts my heart, the young and elderly just running blind, Hurts so bad they denied their own kind, Papa turned around and said that ain't mine, It just made it hard for life on the line, and it's a shame to see a little child mature, Growing up knowing that there ain't no cure" Neneh Cherry "I've Got You Under My Skin" Red Hot + Blue
