Here is one of the faces of AIDS: my long-time colleague and friend Cornell Marigney.
Cornell served for years at CNN as my executive assistant.
He looked and sounded like dreamy crooner Barry White. He was a prankster. We laughed together every day. Cornell was loyal and supportive and a bit nuts.
In 2002, AIDS killed him. It was an excruciating, ugly way to go. Heartbreaking.
On this World AIDS Day, let’s keep AIDS victims and their families and friends in our prayers and do all we can to end this horrible pandemic.
