2011 marks 30 years since the AIDS epidemic began, and is an important time of remembrance for those whose lives have been affected by the disease.

Has AIDS and HIV touched your life or that of someone you know? Have you been inspired to take action in some way? We're putting together a story for CNN.com, and we want to include your voice.

Editor's note: Tune in to "Hope Survives: 30 Years of AIDS," an AC360° beginning 9pm ET Friday.
Greater Than AIDS – a new national movement to respond to AIDS in America– is asking Americans to share their “Deciding Moments," personal experiences that changed how they think about the disease and inspired them to get involved. For many it is someone close to them who was infected. For some it was their own diagnosis. For others it was a realization that we all have a role to play. Tell us about your “Deciding Moment” by visiting: www.greaterthan.org/moment.

    I am everyday reminded that people are not imformed about current research in regard to a potential 'cure' for HIV.
    How Sangamo Biosciences manages to stay off of everyones radar astounds me.
    Ask Matt Sharp how he is doing, is is participating in what could be the most important trial to date.
    And to not include at least a comment on Fridays show, tsk, tsk.
    You might even show Mats video, seems CNN about the only mews fols that have not mentioned it.
    I just thought you should know.
