Imagine how much courage it took for Bill and Dr. Bob to start the newfound 12-Step Fellowship. Glued together by nothing more than a common problem and a loosely formed set of guiding principles, they kept the recovery movement moving in a unified direction, and, in spite of setbacks, they slowly gathered up other men and women. Remembering this, we can be courageous in our own recovery.
Today, I will remember the courageous efforts of those who came before me. I will honor their memory with my own acts of fearlessness.
