Princess Zulu

Voice 1
Hello, I'm Rebekah Schipper.
Voice 2
And I'm Sara DeKoster. Welcome to Spotlight. This programme uses a special English method of broadcasting. It is easier for people to understand no matter where in the world they live. Today's Spotlight is about a brave woman and her fight against the disease, AIDS.
Voice 1
Her name is Princess Zulu. She comes from Zambia in Africa. Princess Zulu's family had royal ancestors. Her parents were rich. They lived in a big house. People worked for them in the house and on the land around the house. Princess Zulu's parents sent her to a good school. She received a fine education. But at the age of fourteen [14], she had to leave school. Her life changed completely. And it was all because of the disease AIDS.
Voice 2
When Princess was ten years old she watched her new baby sister become weaker and weaker until she died. Then her mother became sick and died. No one talked about AIDS. People said the sickness came about because of evil spirits.
Voice 2
Then Princess's father became very sick. He was too weak to walk. Princess carried him on her back to the health care centre. It was ten [10] kilometres from their home. But her father did not get well. He died when Princess was fourteen.
Voice 1
Princess left school to care for her younger brothers and sisters. She had to care for several other young relatives too. Their parents had also died of AIDS. Princess had to look after ten young children. Princess was now very poor. Her parents had used almost all their money to pay the doctors. Princess did not know how to provide for her large family.
Voice 2
She solved the problem by marrying a man who was much older than she was. He had two wives before Princess. They both died from AIDS-related diseases. He already had five children. But he took care of all of them. Princess and her husband also had two children of their own.
Voice 1
Princess started to help at the local hospital after her children were born. She was sad to find that the patients with AIDS did not receive the same care as the other patients. Princess found that she had a great love for the AIDS patients. She wanted to give them extra care. She felt she had a special link to these people.
Voice 1
Then she found out why. Princess and her husband took an AIDS test. They discovered they are both HIV positive. They are infected with the virus that causes AIDS. One day, they would develop the disease.
Voice 2
Princess reacted in a very strange way to this piece of news. Most people are very afraid when they hear they have this terrible virus. They often try to hide the news from their family and friends. They worry about what people will think of them. And they fear becoming very sick and dying. But Princess was full of joy. She says:
Voice 3
'I felt blessed and experienced huge joy. I had been asking God what my purpose in life was to be. Suddenly I knew what that purpose was. I must break down the barriers about this terrible virus. I must work to help those who are left behind, especially the children.'
Voice 1
Princess takes drugs to help fight the virus. She feels very healthy. She looks well. She has lots of energy. She knows that this will change when the disease develops. But she remains happy. She feels she can help the victims of AIDS much better now. She knows what they are suffering. She said:
Voice 3
'I think God chose me to do this work and bring me close to people who are suffering'.
Voice 1
Princess now travels all over the world in order to teach people about the issues surrounding AIDS. She works very hard to get help for people suffering from AIDS. She cares especially about children whose parents have died from the disease. Experts believe that there are about fourteen million [14,000,000] children who have experienced the death of one or more parent from AIDS. Many of these children are now without either of their parents.
Voice 2
In the year 2002, Princess went to speak at an international AIDS conference in Spain. Then, in 2003, she went to the White House in America to talk to President Bush. She told the President about her work. He said that America had a responsibility to help because the problem of AIDS is so serious. Since then Princess has also managed to speak to members of the British government. Princess tells people:
Voice 3
'AIDS knows no borders. It is not just an African problem. It is a world problem'.
Voice 1
Princess also spends time talking about AIDS to individuals who are most in danger of getting the disease. She tells them that men should not have sex with anyone other than their own wives. She explains to them that someone may look healthy but could still be carrying the virus. This surprises many people. But they believe it when they look at Princess herself and hear her story. Princess has a radio programme called 'Positive Living'. She asks experts to speak on her programme. They tell listeners how to prevent and how to treat AIDS. They try to answer any questions the listeners have. This helps listeners to manage the different issues surrounding the disease.
Voice 2
Princess does not know how long she will live. She does know that she wants to help other people to avoid getting AIDS. She also wants to make sure there is good care available for those who already have the disease. And she wants to provide for children whose parents have died from AIDS. Princess laughs as she says:
Voice 3
'I am doing the best I can to live my life and make a difference now. I do not want to die before I am dead!'
Voice 2
Princess is a Christian. She may not know how long she has to live but she does know that her life is in God's hands. Princess said:
Voice 3
'God has trusted me with this virus and he never tests us more than we can stand. You can decide either to break down or to break through. Even if you have to die, what good does it do to worry about it? This is not my home. Zambia is not my home. The world is not my home. My citizenship is not here, it is in heaven'.

Chào thầy Hà nhé. Rất vui được tham gia trang của thầy.

Được biết thầy là một admin của trang violet nên qua hỏi thầy một vấn đề như sau:

"Số là tôi rất thích tạo một blog trên violet nhưng quả thật là không am hiểu lắm về vấn đề này nên nhờ một người khác đăng kí và tạo một trang riêng. Nhưng gần đây thì được thông báo là tài khoản đó bị xóa vĩnh viễn, cũng có nghĩa là trang riêng tôi có trước đó thì bây giờ không có người quản trị, vậy làm thế nào để lấy lại tài khoản đó??????"

Tôi đã vào trang chính http://violet.vn nhưng không thấy có mục hỏi đáp thắc mắc nên đành làm phiền thầy, mong thầy trả lời hộ nhanh nhé. Xin cảm ơn.
