The touching speech “A Whisper of AIDS”, was written and made by Mary Fisher, an American activist, the founder of Family Aids Network and daughter of a prominent businessman. The speech made me feel sorrow for people infected with AIDS, the effect of the disease in their bodies and the numerous prejudices, stigma and the feeling of isolation that they receive from the people around them.
The speech made me deeply connect with the apparently heavy loss that the disease could cause when she speaks of her children, Marks and Zachary and her entire family. In addition, from the speech, I felt the understanding of the fact that the disease does not choose who to attack, it attacks anyone who is human and that is why it is our obligation to create a public awareness of the dangers of AIDS.
Mary Fisher
