  Chuck,

Thank you! One of my cousins talked about your book last week so I got a copy. Read it in three sittings. Awesome/provocative! Many of the pages resonated on many levels for me, both from a personal level as well as remembering when I walked/was present with individuals with HIV/AIDS. Like many folks early on, I had a lot of misconceptions about how a person was infected with HIV, that is until, as I believe, God placed a four year old (K) in my path. Both her parents were positive - her mom passed on the disease. My heart and mind had been challenged and changed.

I appreciated the chapters on your family as it brought back a flood of memories from Roseland and my own Italian heritage. Thinking back, I believe our parents did the best they could with what they had at the time. I have to add that I was saddened when I heard the news of John's death. He was one of the good guys on the playground.

I appreciated the background on the band and the music. My wife and I have been fans since TW4 played her junior prom. We're not big concert folks (though I have records, etc) however we did see Styx in concert in Frankfort, Germany in 1980.

Most of all I appreciate your authenticity. Your sharing not only of your glories but your fears, pains, your perceptions of how other's might think about you if you told them you were gay, and then the unconditional love you experienced when you proclaimed that you were gay speaks to me of a person who knows their true self. I agree that God has given you the vehicles necessary to spread compassion and healing. I also believe that God has given you an understanding of HOPE. Through your book and personal actions, you share a message of hope for those who are going through similar situations whether gay or straight.

  The weblink does a search for some Frankie Laine song on my site.. Whatever plays first is the most popular video, you could use it for music research or just to find interesting stuff, I wrote the software to play videos from youtube consecutively and skip over removed videos.. It doesn't always work, I hop to augment it with Jquery sometime soon.. JQuery is coolness.. Google for "Jquery Mobile".. BTW this captcha is fake..

  BTW, sorry to make that the subject of the message, the disease is not what you are, that's just something you are forced to live with.. I know from fears I had once of the potential of having a disease, that you realize people won't want to have anything to do with you, it's a very lonely experience.. I know a lady with herpes, and she gave it to her child and husband, I keep thinking I could do what Jesus did and take on an illness just to be with someone so they wouldn't feel alone.. I think there are plenty of people who are alone, that would take on a disease to be with someone if they could get rid of loneliness, which is a disease of sorts.. Probably something to think about.. I'm kind of a past-tense Christian, not really, but sorta in the same spirit.. I hate how people who call themselves Christians treat others who are not, I mean those that are bad to others.. Its the one thing Jesus was against, when he speaks out against the pharisees.. For instance, I don't believe in or support war.. War can be a disease, and people who think we need a war, don't know what they are asking for. Jesus said "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword". I think most of the bits the bible about sex is mainly guarding people from breaking up families.. Sex is your own business. But anal sex is where most of the diseases are passed because of the existence of blood in the waste. If a christian ever gets on you for your sexual preference, ask them about divorce, they will back down.. It makes you wonder what Jesus wrote in the Sand when that woman was going to get stoned.. I think he wrote symbols that exposed sins of those ready to stone her.. We all have to be who we are.. Its like Popeye "I am what I am, and thats all I am"..

  Wow, didn't know you were gay until just now.. No biggy.. I try to correct people that you don't get AIDS, HIV is what you get, and AIDS is how it ends.. Essentially, I think, AIDS is just the signs of the last stage of a HIV infection, but old people can die of the same problems without an HIV infection and it could be recognized as AIDS.. I worked on Hepatitis C/B websites for years, so I'm probably the closest you come to someone who is knows somthing but has no direct (knowingly) contact with anyone with the disease. Medical science and diagnosis kinda interests me, but so does mysteries, so I read up on musicians as a sort of fun thing to do.. BTW, excellent Album covers!! And Music!! Hang in there!! I live a stress free life, but I'm a bum.. If you need any webwork, I'm currently working on a iPad painting app in HTML5 and javascript, utilizing phonegap. Hope to have it on the app store someday soon. My website permits you to do searches on the UK charts of the past 50 years, and search youtube for videos..
