The Hopeful Man

He is positively living though optimistically pushing life with no doubt.James is HIV positive and this is known to everyone who known him since he has been telling it everyone and giving himself as an example to those who are negative.He says he is never happy that anyone else gets the disease and he is praying that he would be the last person to be infected with HIV/AIDS.But it will never happen as people out here never take caution. The good thing about him is that he gives hope to those who are accidentally infected and encourages them to keep moving despite him having the big disease.He says that he gets encouragement from CDC and he gives what he is given to others.To him the disease is a big idea for those who take it as a big deal.
