"I attended an AIDS convention in Center City. It enriched my life. It was exciting and very informative. I learned a lot about the epidemic, and I met lots of new friends from around the world. I plan on keeping in touch through email and by seeing them at future events."

"In June, my niece had a baby named Kiesha. It was a blessed event, the highlight of my summer. Babies truly are miracles. She’s a very sweet child. She makes my day, every time I visit. "

"I went to Mexico [where] I attended a destination wedding. The weather was perfect. The people were so friendly, nothing like Trump portrays. And I got an unintended suntan! Overall, it was relaxing to be away from the hustle and bustle of daily life."
