I'm glad to be part of AA

I am glad to be part of AA. I am one of many AAs, but I am only one. I am grateful to be living at this time, when I can help AA to grow, when it needs me to put my shoulder to the wheel and help keep the message going. I am glad to be useful, to have a reason for living, to have a purpose in life. I shall not wait to be drafted for service to my fellow members, but I shall volunteer. I believe that when we come to the end of our lives, it will be only the things we have given away that we will take with us. We will take no material thing with us, but we take with us the kind words we have said, the kind deeds we have done, the help we have given.

- Richmond Walker (anonymous author of little black book, Twenty-Four Hours a Day)
