To The Readers

After three weeks of webpage development, my project is finally complete. It consists of two parts - a HIV model and an AIDS webpage. Hope you really enjoy them, or, at least, learn something from it.

This project had kept me busy these days. In fact, I spend quiet amount of time thinking how to make a project that's really precise, clear, and readable. And therefore, I go to many other webpages and use their knowledge as a reference to my site. This is how I did it: First, I collected information from almost everything I can find. From websites to encyclopedias, from encyclopedias to health book. Whatever you can think of! Then, I read it all over until I fully understand it. Finally, I begin writing everything down according to what I have in my mind. Although it takes long time to complete, however, I really learned a lot. I learned about the importance of time, how to make project interesting, and of course - knowledge. Knowledge is priceless. You can't buy knowledge; you can only learn it by curiosity, concentration and effort. So in despite of the long hours of project planning, difficult editing, troubles, I'll say it's really worth it.

My parents had asked me why I chose to do the main part of my project on a webpage. The answer I gave them is simple - so that people can view my presentation right at their home, and this is true. webpage is motional, it's alive, it stays there forever. And that's the good thing about making project on webpage. Even you travel to other places, you can still view my presentation. The other thing my parents asked me was that ugly, ball-shaped HIV I made. Why did I made a HIV model? The purpose of that is to add a little more understanding of what HIV really look like. Plus to make my project more interesting to look at, because I know most people found it easier to look at pictures than just whole bunch of words.

Every project has its own fantastic parts and silly mistakes. Even the best webpage in the whole world, has strength and weaknesses. My page, like all others, has strength and weakness too. The good thing is that I included all pieces of information that my teacher had told us to do. And that's what I liked about my page. The bad thing is that I can't shrink the complicated information and display with a brief, simple paragraph. Therefore maybe it's a little longer, what do you think?

Since AIDS had become a common disease and a common cause of death among nations, it's becoming closer and closer in threatening our health. Today, we can't just sit there and watch these things happen. In fact, we can't wait to stop it; we can't wait to prevent it from happening. And the only thing is through education. Do you think those people in Africa like to infect AIDS? Do you think that it would made any differences if we donate lots of money to them? Of course not! The only thing that we can do, as a worthwhile individual, is to spread the word on prevention. Don't forget, everytime we spread our knowledge on health awareness, there will be one precious life been saved.
