    The rate of children incorporating HIV is alarming. The statistics are indicating young female teenagers now living with STD’s and HIV are at it highest. This I know is true and hurtful. My niece was only sixteen when she passed away. She contracted the disease from birth her father and mother both have already passed 10 years ago. He was my third brother to have passed away. Three brothers, a sister-in-law, and a niece. There must be something I can do, to let these teenagers know how serious this epedemic is. It is a life changing experience having unsafe SEX and DRUGS. It is up to US to educate the population of teens. They are the future.
