i love this song


To this world Im unimportant
Just because I have nothing to give
So you call this your free country
Tell me why it cost so much to live
Tell me why
This world can turn me down
But I wont turn away, oh no
I wont turn around
All my work and endless measures
Never seem to get me very far
Walk a mile just to move an inch
Now even though
Im trying so damn hard
Im trying so hard
This world can turn me down but
I Wont turn away
And I wont duck and run, cause
Im not built that way
When everything is gone there is
Nothing there to fear
This world cannot bring me down
No cause Im already here, oh no!
I am already here,
Down on my knees
I am already here, on no,
I am Already here
I must have told you a thousand times,
I am not running away
I wont duck and run
I wont duck and run
I wont duck and run
No pass away
This world can turn me down but
I Wont turn away
And I wont duck and run,
cause Im not built that way
When everything is gone
There is nothing there to fear
This world cannot bring me down
No cause Im already here
This world can turn me down
But I wont turn away
And I wont duck away
Cause Im not built that way
When everything is gone there
Is nothing there to fear
This world cannot bring me down
No cause Im already here

Hi Viva!
It's been a long and busy month since the Ride ended and I'm finally back in San Antonio after a fun road trip. Sorry it's taken me so long to write.
Jerry and I went camping by the seat of our pants.
After leaving Billings we drove through the north end
of Yellowstone and then found a camp sight just south of Livingston. Thankfully there we no wind storms! We drove to Washington and spent a couple of nights at my brother's place as well as a day in Seattle. From there we went to Ashland, Oregon. If you haven't been there, you need to go. We went whitewater rafting with Jerry's friend and I even learned to steer the raft through rapids. Then next week was spent on the northern California coast camping in the Redwoods, on the dunes and right on the beach just north of Bodega Bay (Psycho!). After hauling across, California,Nevada and Wyoming we finally made it to Denver where I packed up my things before we flew off to Chicago where we found an apartment. I'll send my new contact information when we gat the lease sent to us. I also wanted to thank you for your hard work during the ride and especially for your patience with me when I didn't know what was going on. Cacti and adversity will either forge friendships or cause a war - I'm thankful for the friendship forged. I often find
myself wondering how everyone is doing and hope to see you again on another ride in the future. I really appreciated knowing that I could always count on you for some duct tape as well as your connection with the massage tent :-).
I'm attaching the front page photo that came out after
the ride in case you didn't get a chance to pick up a
Please say hi to your mom for me.

montana aids vaccine ride

Cyclists cruising for a cure
Of The Gazette Staff

Peter Crosby remembers standing in line in the 1950s waiting to receive a vaccine for polio, a disease that was striking nearly 60,000 Americans each year. The country sighed in relief at Dr. Jonas Salks discovery.

Crosby, an attorney from Anchorage, Alaska, said he pedaled 575 miles across Montana this week to be able to someday see lines form for an AIDS vaccine.

Id just like to see the same thing happen, he said. Im really concerned about the pandemic going on.

Crosby and 1,024 other cyclists rolled across the finish line in the green grass of Pioneer Park Sunday afternoon, ending a seven-day cycle across Montana to raise money for AIDS research. Participants in the Pallotta TeamWorks Montana AIDS Vaccine Ride began their journey in Missoula early Monday morning. They crossed the Continental Divide near Lincoln at Flesher Pass at an elevation of 6,130 feet.

Cyclists not only had to deal with freezing rain at the pass and triple-digit temperatures in the Yellowstone River Valley, but each had to raise at least $3,400 to join the ride. Representatives of Pallotta TeamWorks said information on proceeds will be calculated and available in early December.

Last summer, 1,494 cyclists including Crosby participated in an AIDS Vaccine Ride in Alaska. The group raised $8.2 million and sent $4.1 million to charity. Pallotta TeamWorks, a for-profit company based in Los Angeles, kept $2.4 million for marketing, administration and production expenses, according to information supplied by the company.

AIDS vaccine rides are also planned for Alaska and Canada later this summer.

Although riders in the Montana AIDS Vaccine Ride came from every state, a handful also were from Billings, including Julie Stevens, a radiology technician at Deaconess Billings Clinic.

Stevens said she suffered from heat exhaustion near Livingston and freezing temperatures as she pedaled across the Continental Divide. But she kept pumping her pedals because of the larger purpose of the event.

I love cycling and I work in the medical field, Stevens said. I worked through college taking care of patients with AIDS.

Stevens, like most of the other cyclists, cried during closing ceremonies Sunday afternoon. She was one of four cyclists who escorted a riderless cycle during the ceremony in remembrance of the 20 million AIDS victims.

Julie Stevens and her daughter, Michelle, celebrate and cheer other riders during the final minute of closing ceremonies. Stevens, a radiology technician at Deacones Billings Clinic, escorted one of four riderless bikes up to the stage, representing those lost to AIDS.
Stevens said she was exhausted by aching muscles and drained emotions, but she was also buoyed by an intense endorphin boost after the 57-mile final leg from Columbus to Billings under a searing August sun.

Im so tired, she said. Every muscle in my body aches. This is beyond anything Ive ever done before.

The 589,000 miles pedaled by the AIDS riders was described as heroism in the name of others, by Dan Pallotta, CEO of Pallotta TeamWorks.

To be willing to get in the boat and row on their behalf is the epitome of humility, of courage, he said.

Justin Akin is part of 20 HIV-positive riders called the Positive Peddlers who will never benefit from a potential vaccine.

Im not doing this for me, said Akins, a lab administrator at the UCLA AIDS Institute. Im doing this for the next generation.

Proceeds from the ride will go to three AIDS research centers: the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center in New York City, the UCLA AIDS Institute in Los Angeles and the Emory Vaccine Center in Atlanta.

Dr. Mark Feinberg, with the Emory Vaccine Center in Atlanta, thanked the cyclists for their work.

The AIDS epidemic is the largest threat mankind faces, Feinberg said. The road ahead will be long and challenging, but you all know about long and challenging, dont you?

The spandex-clad crowd roared at the words and sprayed their water bottles into the air.
