The Ride to end MS

Praises to the almighty human!

Strength and fortitude and daring! The almighty human rises to a call of his own making. Shining spirit, shining tower of strength, rising to a height of daring and human competitiveness, known really only to themselves.
The devastating ravages of disease and failure, of a weakened body, so frail and hurting. Rise to the glory, almighty human! Shine in the glory of a feat of daring, of life sustaining, of work and endurance, for a goal of compassion. Hail to you, oh great spirit, for the quest of your achievement. To rise above it all, to conquer the foe, to beat the devil and to smile that victorious win.
A milestone of human endurance, another thousand kilometers of road. Snow and harsh wind, icy rain and unbearable heat, the weather is a task master of doom and hardship. Regardless of all humanity and preparation, the weather is the merciless master of it all.
Praises, almighty human, dauntless of it all. No sickness or obstacle can defeat the bold and daring. Another storm, another kilometer, another technical breakdown. Onward and onward to pursue the goal of victory and awesome challenge, for as yet an inconquerable beast. Still no cure for this dangerous illness, the Muscular Sclerosis Society needs help. Greg Van Tighem, riding his fat bike from Masset BC to Winnipeg, Manitoba, March and April 2014.

The fragile bodies of weakened beings, a diagnosis still without a cure. The sinking masses of humanity, falling into the plight of incurable illness. A dangerous endevour, a risky undertaking, a drive for a cure of a devastating illness. Greg Van Tighem on the road for a cure of Muscular Sclerosis. The endms93 bike ride from Arizona, USA to Jasper, Alberta along highway 93, 2013.

The pledge drive for $93,000.00 has still not been met, yet the campaigne drive for the cure is still ongoing. Another kilometer of road, another grateful pledge, the master of wheel and fortune persists in charity and hope, to quash the life debilitating monster that sickens the soul. Crush the body with evil illness, ruin the health with pain and agony. A struggle to overcome the sinking sadness of loss and despair. Another kilometer to ride for the cure, to bring hope and possibility to those in pain. Another kilometer of painful riding, of unknown road and lonely travel. A conquest of trust and preparedness, of single travel, without support. Day after day the road winds its weary path to follow. The body accepts the command of the mind. Rise in the morning, fulfill this challenge. The mind demands and the body obeys. Mind over body, mind over illness, mind over matter.
Whatever befalls us, on the great road to living, be it in sickness or in health, the road winds onward for us to follow.
Awesome human, masters of destiny, find comfort and support in your brethren there. Today is a day for the great joy of living.
Rise to your calling, almighty human. Follow your road.

Good Day. Brave hearts
This day is a day of adventure. Follow your pursuits. A grand day of living, of joy, of praises to you, almighty human for your gifts and treasures, for the great gift of spirit and mind. Praises to you for dedication, for curiosity, for belief and daring. To never stop, to accept the challenge and to use the mind for the purpose that it was intended. To use that intellect for the greater good of mankind and of the great planet. What benefits that one persistent intellect will benefit us all.
Praises, brave hearts, to the heroes among us. We live longer, we live better, we are healthier and more prosperous. Praises to you for that great gift, the gift of a great mind.
In Canada, the food industry protects the consumer from the ravages of disease caused by unhealthy food sources. Unsuspecting victims of contaminants in food products, strains of bacteria that cause disease. The work of thinkers and doers, of persistent curiosity and well educated intellect. The work of determination, of perseverance, of never accepting defeat. The work of years of dedication to task. The thought process of I will, I can, I must. This is the thinking that brings about revolutionary ideas, discovery and cure. Brilliant mankind, who lives forever, for genius never dies.
From the lowly life of a pauper rises the aptitude of a shining star. A brilliant mind from an obscure family. A mind of inspiration, of imagination, of toil, of diligence, of perspective. An unusual twist of an average student to rise to the fame of a doctorate in science. A brilliant doctorate of science and microbiology.
Hail, Louis Pasteur for the gift of your aptitude that brings cure to us all.

The work is the constant diligence that resolved the problem of bacterial contaminants in milk. Bacterial contaminants that cause disease and spoil the product.
Hail, Louis Pasteur for the invention of pasteurization. Nearly two hundred years ago when a brilliant mind focused on the need for a cure to a deadly disease that spread throughout Europe. Milk is a widely consumed whole food that was the cause of this disease. Pasteur invented a method of bringing milk to a high degree then cooling it quickly to kill off the contaminating bacteria. This was also done with alcohol, since it had also become contaminated.
An astute observation brought about an immediate cure. A simple process, easily done, but not so easily conceived.
Pasteurization is still used today, to eliminate deadly bacteria in foods such as milk and other beverages. Pasteurization is required in Canada to prevent the milk from spoiling and becoming a deadly food.
Milk is labelled according to the fat content of the product, such as Whole, Skim, or Partly skimmed 1% or 2% milk, never as raw milk. It is also labelled as pasteurized and homogenized.

Pasteur also invented a cure for rabies, anthrax, chicken cholera and a disease that was killing silk worms and ruining the silk industry. He also invented vaccines.
