MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A candlelight vigil in downtown Macon sparked a conversation about HIV/AIDS and the people who lost their battle to the disease.

The ceremony at High Street Church in downtown Macon included music, speakers and prayer. Each person was asked to share the name of a loved one and a story about how they are personally affected by the disease.

“They deserve this,” said High Street Church interim minister Rev. Cynthia Scott.

Scott hopes the church will help the community move past the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS. The theme for World AIDS Day is “Getting to Zero”, with a focus on eliminating new infections, discrimination by 2015.
