As I recall my memories from Camp Starlight, I have no sob stories to give you about the hardships that these children face in the shadow of HIV. That is because the people of Camp Starlight have created a place where these kids get to live the life that HIV robs them of.
As a human being, I could tell that some of these kids lived in situations in which no kid should have to live. Absent parents, drugs, violence, sex, you get the idea. But for that week, they could be exactly who they were and get exactly what they needed.
