Readers See Their Own Souls in Cordero Story

August 07, 1992

I have been wandering around all day trying to find words to express how deeply your article about Raphael Cordero touched me. I haven't had much luck. I sat at the table and wept for 10 minutes after I finished it. I called several friends and told them to read it. Two of them called me back when they'd finished, both of them in tears.

I've had two friends die of AIDS and I have another friend afraid to be tested, who lives his days now in constant terror.

I have thought for a long time now that I wanted to become actively involved in the fight against AIDS and for greater acceptance in general of gays and lesbians. I am finally going to do something about it as a result of your article.
