Last week we attended the Traverse City Fall Round Up. Which is a regional AA conference. I spoke on Sunday and gave my Open Talk with an emphasis on my spiritual journey.
Following our reflections, we will play an episode we participated in with The Recovery Show. We all watched the movie Days of Wine and Roses and then we recorded an episode on our reaction to this movie about alcoholics, recovery, and relapse.
I'm attending a suicide survivors support group with victims that range from 14 to 35. The time since death ranges from 30 years to 3 months. Just like AA, there is no other place where you can talk about these feelings. The question of why, why didn't’ we see it? We are haunted by the thought that we could have prevented this disaster.
I've been working in Toronto and commuting back and forth with my co-worker. He’s a faithful Muslim, he's from northern Africa and has a green card.He also has French nationality. Try to explain this gracefully to the boarder patrol when trying to cross the border. I’m always terrified when I try to re enter the USA, I just imagine getting my car searched .
Now we are going to play an episode we participated in from The Recovery Show….
Check out this episode!
