“Would there be quarrels
leadership and money?
Would there be strivings
for power and prestige? …
But out of this frightening and
at first disrupting experience
the conviction grew that A.A.’s
had to hang together or die separately.
We had to unify our Fellowship or pass off the scene.”
BB p XIX
The AA symbol is the triangle.
The first leg is Recovery, for without the indviduals well being
the fellowship has no members.
The second leg is Service, one drunk helping another.
The base of the triangle, the third leg is Unity,
the fellowship must hang together
or surly we will die separately.
Today, when anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help,
I want the hand of AA to be there
and for that I am responsible.
Recovery is one day at a time.
Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
ME and the Boss
And, if no one has told you yet today,
God loves you and so do we.
