Buried Alive

I have been thinking a lot about the HIV positive lady that I helped through labor. I called her Kahlia on this blog.  I heard stories today of two other HIV positive ladies who lived in my town here.   One woman, when her family discovered her HIV status, they forced her into a coffin and nailed it shut.  Then they buried her alive.  Another they tied up and kept in a pit until she died a month later.  There is such fear and such a stigma here when it comes to HIV!  It makes me really sad.
