Responsibility Statement

I am responsible…
When anyone, anywhere,
reaches out for help, I want
the hand of A.A. always to be there.
And for that: I am responsible.

A Declaration of Unity

This we owe to A.A.’s future:
To place our common welfare first;
To keep our fellowship united.
For on A.A. unity depend our lives,
And the lives of those to come.

From Bill’s last message…

If I were asked which of our blessings
I felt was most responsible for our
growth as a fellowship and most vital
to our community, I would say, the
“Concept of Anonymity.”
