NPR did a great piece about the 25th year of the AIDS Memorial Quilt earlier this week. At 48,000 panels, the Quilt is too large to display in one piece – it would stretch 50 miles. Each panel is 3 feet by 6 feet, the size of a human grave. A woman, inteviewed for the story and visiting the panel honoring her brother, acknowledged her feelings of grief 20 years after her brother’s passing.

The Quilt is a great example of keeping people’s memories alive and reminding us that AIDS has killed 94,000 individuals who were brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, children, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, neighbors, friends, coworkers – people who were loved.
