"In country after country where the A.A. seed was planted, it has taken root, slowly at first, then growing by leaps and bounds when literature has become available. . . . sweeping changes in society as a whole are reflected in new customs and practices within the Fellowship. Taking advantage of technological advances, for example, A.A. members with computers can participate in meetings online, sharing with fellow alcoholics across the country or around the world."

-Alcoholics Anonymous, p. xxiii - xxiv

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.
