The Quilt Aids Memorial MSU Union December 2 1999 On December 2nd I went to see the Aids Quilt at the Michigan State Union I remember going to see the Quilt once when I was younger as it was shown at a viewing at a local community center When I was younger I didnt really understand what the quilt was about All I knew was that the patches that comprised the quilt were made by families of loved ones who had passed on due to complications due to AIDS Now that I am older and I know more about AIDS and I see the quilt for what it really is Not only did the exhibit touch me but I also was totally overwhelmed The quilt has so much more meaning than just a bunch of decoration on a large piece of cloth Each banner on the quilt represents a true hero It represents the men and women who died because of a horrible disease Mothers fathers sisters brothers aunts uncles cousins students friends and colleagues People of black white Asian and European descent Rich poor educated and non-educated memb ers of the community I suddenly realized AIDS knows no boundaries and affects EVERYONE I felt tears roll down my cheeks So many different thoughts pop into my head Why does this disease even have to exist Why isnt there a cure What can I do Amongst the silent and subdued tone that filled the room I heard my own cries I searched around to see the expressions of the other visitors What brings the other visitors here Are the other visitors carriers of the AIDS virus and here looking to see what is to become of them after they pass on The deceased have no reason to be ashamed Each and every one of these panels is amazing Some are decorated elaborately with pictures paint sequins ballet slippers army badges patches rainbows medical prescriptions
