From one of America's best known newsmen comes a heart-lifting story of the resilience of the human spirit in the face of the worst conceivable tragedy. Born into poverty in a South African shantytown, Nkosi Johnson entered the world infected with HIV. He was given only a few years to live. But his ailing mother managed to cross her country's chasm of race and class and find Nkosi a new home and a foster mother who stubbornly believed that every child's life is important. Before he died at the age of twelve, Nkosi had become - in Nelson Mandela's words - "an icon of the struggle for life" for millions in Africa and around the world. In We Are All the Same, Jim Wooten tells the story of these remarkable people with power and simple, unflinching honesty, giving an intimate voice to the too-often-mute human dimension of the global AIDS crisis.
