AA International in Toronto, ON 1965

2nd General Session - 1965 - I AM RESPONSIBLE

Sober 30 years, after clarifying what it means, Bill W leads the audience as they officially adopt the "I am Responsible Pledge":

"I am responsible.
When anyone, anywhere
reaches out for help
I want the hand of AA
always to be there
and for that
I am responsible"

The pledge was then repeated in multiple languages.

It finishes with Bill's wife, and Al-Anon co-founder, Lois W, leading the audience in the Lord's Prayer.

Held Saturday night in the Maple Leaf Gardens
