Thought for the day:

“We who live in the haven of AA cling together with an intensity of purpose which the outside
world seldom comprehends. The anarchy of the individual melts away. Self-love subsides and
democracy becomes a reality. We begin to know true freedom of the spirit.”

 AA Co-Founder, Bill W., July 1946
“The Individual in Relation to AA as a Group”
Language of the Heart
