Valerie JarrettValerie Jarrett, senior advisor to President Obama, has a great blogpost on the White House site in commemoration of National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. While our advances in the struggle against this tragic disease are worth celebrating, Jarrett points out that we still have a long way to go before victory, particularly for Black Americans:

On this, the 12th annual National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, I remember my sister-in-law’s fight with the disease. Tragically, she did not win that fight – she left behind a devastated husband and five-year old daughter. But it is in her memory, and the memory of all the friends and loved ones we have lost, that we vow to keep working toward the day when HIV/AIDS is history.
