Yes, the girls must be blamed for their own careless actions. When a tragedy like this happens, I think peopleís gut reaction is anger and a desire to find someone to blame but I believe the blame is still on our young girls. We can partly blame the HIV virus infested men who are deliberately going around making our young vulnerable girls sick but these young school girls are not still in their diapers and donít know what they are doing. They are old enough to use their God given faculty of knowledge to make sound decisions. They werenít born yesterday! These girls should have decided to err on the side of caution.

Furthermore, I donít want to be cynical here but these girls are not genuine students . If they we, then they would have set their priorities right Ė Education and not shagging around regardless of what the situation might have been. We have to accept the fact that these girls were just too ignorant despite the countless awareness that had been going on about HIV AIDS. These girls have deliberately committed suicide because they are tired of living so be it!

It seems that the more and more awareness of this dreadful disease is made, the more and more ignorant people are becoming. It makes one wonder what could be the next most appropriate method to use to educate our people not to get sick.

God help us to stay faithful!

Maybe you could wonder about changing your own views by thinking about these few things:

Improve the status of women, challenging stigmas and changing attitudes, addressing men's roles in prevention.

cheers :)

I canít agree more with some of the good points you have brought about to argue your case. These transformations that youíve mentioned are big steps that canít be done quickly by a wave of a magic wand. We have to think big but start small. Thus, it all comes down to an individual for him/her to make sound decisions. No one can force things to come upon someone. You can make things happen or you may not. The power of choice is in your own hands. If you abuse that, then you are liable to suffer the consequences of your own careless actions. It doesnít take a rocket scientist to figure that out. Thatís the bottom line.

Peace out!
