Elizabeth Taylor, the original Fierce Advocate….

All that I keep thinking is that Elizabeth Taylor was the original FIERCE ADVOCATE!  As this coming June is the 30th anniversary of the first HIV/AIDS diagnoses in the country, this is a loss felt by so many affected by this disease.

When my dear friend, Bob Berkeley was near the end of his journey in the early 1990’s people were still scared if he and I would share a meal.  Elizabeth Taylor stood with Rock Hudson, she held his hand, she touched his face and she took a stigma away for millions and showed so many suffering that there was compassion.

Here is link to the wikipedia page on Elizabeth Taylor.
