World AIDS Day 2003

by Bradford McIntyre

Dia Mundial de Lucha contra el SIDA 2003 (Espaņol)

   

    When it comes to how we view HIV and AIDS, the most visible, is the fear, illness and death tolls. What we don't see are the great numbers of individuals infected with the HIV virus, who are LIVING! Just because an individual tests HIV positive, this does not automatically mean they will get sick and die. There ARE people who have been infected since the very beginning, who are NOT sick or on any HIV/AIDS medications and they are happy, healthy and alive. Equally so, people who are on medications, they too, have learned to address the importance of nutrition, exercise, vitamins, minerals, herbs and botanicals, complementary therapies, mind, body and spirit. They are living years, over 20 years for many, with more to come!

On November 28th 1985, I was told I had six months to live! After four years of living in fear, my life took a dramatic turn and I embarked on a journey away from fear! Healing does not necessarily mean cure of disease, but healing our mind and transforming our body to realize its full potential, joy and purpose. Learning about the influence that our thoughts have on our life and health. Living today as healthy and as fully as you can, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. The Abundance of Life does not come from what one can provide for oneself, but it is provided in our connectedness. I would not be here today if were not for all the many people in my life. I Show UP For Life! Life's a celebration, you don't need and invitation to celebrate life!

We don't have to carry the fears that were created around HIV! Fear is like putting up a stop sign for living! There is more power in people knowing the Truth, than there ever will be in the fear and hiding. While dealing with HIV and AIDS, dedicated people have worked tirelessly, creating awareness in the many areas related to HIV and AIDS. Individuals spoke out, ignored the HIV stigma, and they broke down the barriers of fear and discrimination in their own lives, as well as for the sake of others.

Most of what caused the fear and stigma originally, does not exist today! We have treatment options and people are living long and productive lives. More and more people are out about HIV. In the earlier years I hid away and felt alone, but since going public and disclosing my status nearly ten years now, I have a freedom I did not have before! With this freedom I am committed to breaking down the barriers of fear and discrimination Globally! We are ALL connected!

Whether You are affected by, or infected with HIV, we must cross those boundaries of Fear and Discrimination. To join Our Hearts and Our Hands, in the realization we are ALL here to LOve one another. I join with you that we create a shift in thinking around HIV/AIDS, and All disease! LOve is the way!
