My character was a strong-willed individual; he faced many obstacles along the way. Bos problem with drugs after the Vietnam War would lead him to recovery, and relapse several times. He managed to stay clean for many years and live a productive life until AIDS entered his world. Once he delivered the news of contracting AIDS, the daily struggle with the disease, co workers, and a once loving and supportive family began. He was left isolated, punished, and desolate by the people he needed most (family). However with the love of his best friend Annie and some true friends, his life became good again. Living with AIDS guided Bo into finding something so much deeper within himself and took him on a journey of finding true peace.
