The life expectancy for people with AIDS in Africa is about 32 years old. For most of us our parents would be dead by now. So imagine you live in Africa both of your parents had died from AIDS. When I think about that I am a lot more grateful for my family. If are an only child you would have to be taking care of yourself. If you are the oldest in the family you would be taking care of your younger siblings. And by taking care I mean doing everything from getting water to trying to find a place to live. And this has all happened from there parent dieing from AIDS. Also these kids will probably end up becoming orphans because, they have no where to go or on one to look after them. There are 13.2 million orphans in sub-Saharan Africa. That needs to change. So next time you get mad at your parents realize some kids in Africa would kill for any parent.
