On World AIDS Day, we take a look at the National AIDS Memorial Grove in San Francisco. The Grove was created in the 1990s and is 10 acres of trees and plants with a circular monument honoring over 3,000 people touched by AIDS.

People come to remember their loved ones and to find peace in nature. Amanda Stupi of KQED reports.
