To Ryan White:
Ryan, I saw you today on the Phil Donahue Show and was very impressed by the way you conducted yourself on national television in front of all those people.
I am a nineteen year old college freshman in Arizona who has a siezure disorder called epilepsy. My case is not by any means a serious one, as I've had no major problems in about two years (thank God!), but, it does exist. I am telling you this because I want you to know that I do understand what many seemingly do not. AIDS is a terrible thing, but it is people like you who will help us all to overcome this, and other indifferences.
Thank you for your awesome courage, and know that you are a man.
