I work in a kitchen were we have music playing all day. I have a wide interest in music but the one thing that I just can't stand is country. We have an agreement at work and luckily limit it to country Wednesdays, thankfully. So instead of putting on my headphones to listen to music, I like to listen to books. It makes my day just fly by and its so hard to find the time to read as much as I want to. I enjoy a lot of non fiction biographies and scifi, which of course could be non fiction, but that's a discussion for another time. Anyway, yesterday I listened to a book, Positive: A Memoir by Paige Rawl, and it was incredibly moving. Paige was born HIV positive, passed from her dad, to mom, to her. For Paige, its just a way of life, pills she takes everyday, her mom constantly hovering, but everyone has something to deal with or so she thought when she decided to share this with her best friend in middle school. What and how she than dealt with all that followed took so much courage and strength, the kind that most of us will hopefully never have to experience. What really got me was that she was born in 1994 so this was very recent. It makes me so crazy that with all the knowledge we have at our finger tips, people choose to be so ignorant and hateful of others. I had a little trouble in the beginning with it going back and forth to different points in her childhood but I was also running around trying to decorate 1400 cupcakes and 24 cakes. I highly recommend this book as a must read, or listen, to all.
