|4 stars, 1 review on Amazon|
James E. Mutumbaabout this book: Smiling in the Storm is a People Living with AIDS (PLWA) storybook containing stories of twenty valiant AIDS sufferers who stood up and told the world not only that they had the disease, but also how they contracted it, how they found out their statuses and how they were battling it. Their message is precisely speaking, a battle call to other AIDS patients and to the world at large not to bow to the cruelty of the plague but to use all means possible to fight it defiantly.
The book brings the unique stories to the world to deliver greater awareness and education from Uganda about the disease and about the social therapies that can be applied as supplements to medical science or in the absence of it actually.
The stories are an illustration of what the slogan "living positively with AIDS" means. A Social Scientist and World Vision Staff had this to say in comment: "... From observation, I must say there is immeasurable power in accessing counseling services, in group therapy, and above all in finding hope and strength in God through Jesus Christ. I salute AIDS patients who go public like the authors of the stories in this book did, because this presents opportunities for useful linkages that help with HIV&AIDS management, and enhances positive living. The beauty of these stories is admirable" — Agatha Kisakye Kabugo, Child Protection and Advocacy Coordinator, World Vision Uganda.
I believe that no one will read this book and remain untouched and unmoved. You will want to be in some way part of the world warriors against AIDS.
