This picture is widely considered the photo that changed the face of AIDS. It showed AIDS victims as humans and people with families.

In November 1990 LIFE magazine published a photograph of a young man named David Kirby — his body wasted by AIDS, his gaze locked on something beyond this world — surrounded by anguished family members as he took his last breaths.

My soul is exhausted awaiting Your rescue
    yet I keep hoping in Your word.
My eyes are strained as I look for what You promised,
    saying, “When will You come to comfort me?”
Even though I have shriveled up like a wineskin left in the smoke,
    I still remember what You require.
