What's the Right Greeting?

It's World AIDS Day. Since this isn't a day of celebration, what's the appropriate greeting on this day? If someone offered me a cheery "Happy World AIDS Day," I'd think he was still in a Thanksgiving tryptophan coma.

Maybe a more appropriate greeting would be, "It's World AIDS Day and I've been tested." Or, "Let's hope this is the last World AIDS Day." Or, "I'll show you my status if you'll show me yours."
