Students and teachers at Edward R. Murrow High School in Brooklyn put up a colorful quilt for their observance of World AIDS Day Saturday.
The school gets panels from around the world for the quilt.
Each one represents someone who died of HIV or AIDS.
The student-run "Heart Club" uses the quilts to educate people and raise money for related charities.
"A lot of people infected with HIV and AIDS are dying," said student Nicholas Campbell. "I want to let people know that it's ok, you don't have to show that it's a scar that you're holding, but something that we can help you with."
"By the time I graduated, my uncle was very sick, and a year after, my uncle passed away of AIDS," said teacher Lisa Willner. "I made the promise to myself and made the promise to my family and to my uncle that I would continue to speak, even when he couldn't."
The quilt hanging has been a Murrow tradition for 19 years now.
