"PRIDE & COMMITMENT AT EACH STEP"

Last month, the students in our Resource Room read a play in Action magazine
about you and your fight to remain in school. This play sparked the students'
interest in the AIDS issue in general and your plight in particular. As a
follow-up activity, we watched a video of "The Ryan White Story" and completed
several writing assignments.
One such assignment was to write you a letter. I hope you enjoy readig these
letters. They have been written only through a great deal of effort on the
part of my students, who also face many trials during their school day because
of academic and/ emotional difficulties. Perhaps this is why them seemed to
identify with you.
I commend you and your family for your efforts in bringing the trauma of AIDS
to light. Too often it has been thought of as a disease which affects only a
limited population. It is important for all of us to realize that it will
affect all too manyof us in the years to come.
