Margaret is an old lady of 87. She is a teacher, long retired. She lived a good life, but now, she feels the weight of years. She knows what suffering is.Now she suffers over her grandson, who has just announced to the whole family that he is HIV-positive. Some are ashamed, others are angry, all are silent. Needless to say, he himself is devastated. Margaret rises up with the help of her cane and goes to her grandson. She says softly in his ear: "We have something in common: the main thing is to know that's you're not completely down." And she gives him a hug.Margaret has just given a lesson in humanity.The first treatment is our solidarity. AIDS, the Great National Cause for 2005.
The handle of a cane turned upside down in which a young man sits, and a pendant with a picture of an old woman.
