AIDS attacks all nations
"Tansi, Hello, My name is Aaron Currie. While I was going to school at the Samson Alternative School, I was asked if I wanted to do a poster on AIDS Awareness in community of Hobbema. I took it because no one else wanted to. No one likes to talk about AIDS until it's too late, but we have to be aware of this killer disease that attacks all Nations, yes, us too. We can overcome the fear of this virus with awarenss. I am happy to have been asked... Aaron Currie. Take precautions. Ayasweyihtamok"
Currie, Aaron. (artist)
