“…I am so sorry that I cannot be with you today as I am out of the country…
I do want you to know that I have, and still am totally committed to this issue of HIV/AIDS within our communities in numbers that are so much out numbering those in other communities throughout the USA and WORLDWIDE!!…
 
I am pleased that Bishop Hilliard has taken the initiative to hold this event to continue to keep information coming to all in attendance of great value.
