MINORITY "The greatest good of a minority of our generation may be
the greatest good for the greatest number of people in the long
run." -- Oliver Wendell Homes, Jr. I belong to a minority. I am a
recovering alcoholic. I use a spiritual program that keeps me sober
a day at a time. I have a God that I can understand today. I do a
daily inventory and make amends when appropriate, and I feel good
about myself. This spiritual program is reaching out to the world:
gamblers, overeaters, cocaine addicts, the families of addicts, the
children of compulsive people; obsessive people can all be helped
by this daily program of acceptance. Perhaps the recovering drunk
has stumbled upon a miracle that can bring the world back to God!
Lord, the more I talk about my "difference" with people, the more
they and I feel the same.
