McCain Kids Don AIDS Red Ribbons

I'd like to say a word of thanks to the children of John and Cindy McCain for donning AIDS red ribbons on Monday at the GOP convention in St. Paul.

Photos of the kids wearing the international symbol of solidarity for people with HIV/AIDS and awareness about the disease appeared today on Meghan McCain's blog.

There's no explanation from Meghan about why she and her siblings wore the ribbons, and I've seen nothing on the web or in the press about this, so if anyone learns why they put the ribbons on, please let me know.

Small visible gestures of solidarity, to be sure, but anything positive from the GOP family this week on HIV/AIDS is something I want to note.
