(#1229) Clara S (Los Angeles, CA)
7/13-16/1994 in Atlanta, GA  EVENT: 19th Atlanta Roundup  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Sober 20 years since her first AA meeting 4/7/1974, Clara felt as she was living the story of the Prodigal Son.

Born in Atlanta at Grady hospital, she grew up and went to Booker T. Washington High School in the city where this event was held. She has a done and seen alot since then yet has come home with dignity.

She was a winette when she came into AA - Ripple style - living on the streets of the ghetto in South Central Los Angeles.

She was a welfare mom. The loneliness was overwhelming fleeing to a barstool between the tragedies of yesterday and the promises of tomorrow.

Her traveles had taken from the streets and the fast lanes of New York and Harlem and Boston.
