    I've lost friends and family to AIDS

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     omekongo says that after realizing that he had relatives in Congo that contracted the AIDS virus, he wrote the poem "And I Don't Even Know Her Name". He said that he wants to reach out and help the current epidemic in Congo.
    - JacqueCNN, CNN iReport producer

    I've lost family friends to AIDS as well as family members back home in Congo whom I will never know. As we approach another World AIDS Day, we need to continue to not only push harder for a cure, but also continue to show compassion for those affected by AIDS and that includes family members of the afflicted.
