"We are all the same" was the closing line of young AIDS sufferer Nkosi Johnson's message to participants in an AIDS conference in Durban. Born HIV-positive, Nkosi was adopted by Gail Johnson, a white South African woman, after his mother's death from AIDS. His story became a symbol of the AIDS crisis in Africa when Johnson tried to enroll him in a public school. ABC News reporter Jim Wooten followed Nkosi's experiences as he became a celebrity in his own country and worldwide. Wooten makes the story of Nkosi's short life a personal one; his admiration for the boy is clear. Inspiring and touching by turns, the story puts a human face on an emotional issue.
