    Geography Lesotho is a small African country located in the southern portion of Africa. Lesotho is enclaved by the country, South Africa.

(2013) found “approximately less than 15% of the population in Lesotho who is infected with HIV have access to treatment” (p. 72). Having a lack of access to healthcare services such as ART treatment is…

    This book tells the story of Damon Courtenay as he tries to overcome the adversities caused by haemophilia and Aids. After I finished this book, I was disappointed by the treatment people with HIV and Aids received, particularly by the men and women in the medical profession. I don't want to sound hypocritical and judge these people because personally, I don't know how I will react to such situation, particularly in the 1980’s where the knowledge of this disease was very low.

    a hard time but because he knows the grass is greener on the other side. He also sings, “I 'm pushing to stay with something better,”(6) reiterating that he is struggling to overcome his addiction. All throughout the poetic song he repeats himself as most songs do called a chorus, but he more than repeats the chorus, he purposely repeats himself, such as in line 20, 30, and 44, as symbolism, a symbol for the habitual repetitive use of addictive behavior, that is alcoholism.

Nobody cares about birds, and my dinosaur phase soon wore off. Although my little life now had no purpose I continued to draw. Because of all my practice I was more advanced than the other children in my classes and it was uncommon for me to show off my artwork. Don’t get me wrong it was still pretty bad, but for a 5 year…
