Paige Goodlett- "It is important to remember, when we are tempted to acquiesce to the comforts of society, that when we wake up the next morning and look in the mirror, we will see the reflection of only one individual, and if we have defined ourselves based solely on the standards of others, then this individual will cease to exist."

Lauren Yeargin- "As a human being I understand I have the capacity to exude individuality, truth and love. If after these have been given to the world and I receive none back, I will be slightly disappointed, yet content in the sheer fact that I have lived my life the way I wanted to."
Caitlin Major- "To be selfless when faced with peril, to be truthful when met with fallacy, to be tolerant of all those who surround me, and to be humble when all of these have been attained..."
Cynthia Ossowski- "To live life for one's self free from the judgments and pressure of others is the ultimate quest, for happiness can only be found within."
Taylor Howard- "I strive to be me and no one else. For the moment I put someone else's thoughts, ideals or beliefs above my own, I lose the power that makes one human: individuality."
Maegan Fairchild- "The greatest crime is to be untrue to one's self; a false heart is the only blemish darker than death. There is beauty in all that lives. One must always live with the utmost respect for existence. God exists. Truth is to love him unconditionally, regardless of form, of presence, of being, of action, of perception."
Alyssa Boyer- "In this lifetime I aspire to make some kind of a difference, something so that I may leave the world a little bit better than I found it, to be a woman of my convictions even when the road of life is full of bumps and potholes."
Elizabeth Coble- "I am an individual, yet I am a product. I am baked using key ingredients from within, but contain a pinch of spice, flavored by the world."

Now until World AIDS Day (December 1, 2007), we're working to obtain 6,000 signatures for advocacy campaigns. The petition will advocate the U.S. government for reauthorization of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) as well as continuing support for the allocation of 10 percent of global AIDS funding to orphans and vulnerable children.
Schools which meet this challenge will receive a unique opportunity to send one delegate from campus to Washington, D.C. in the spring to deliver the petitions personally and to participate in a national lobby day. Acting on AIDS will cover the cost of travel and lodging for our delegate. (Heading up this campaign will be Sarah Settle.)

Advocate for urgent funding.
On May 30, President Bush announced his intent to double global AIDS funding over the next five years. We have an opportunity to show significant support for this funding by urging Congress to reauthorize the Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief with 10 percent earmarked toward caring for orphans and vulnerable children. This legislation will help save lives, and through our advocacy efforts we can ensure that our government leaders hear the millions of voices who have not been heard. It is crucial that Congress reauthorize this bill quickly so that programs can be funded and implemented as soon as possible.
