(#1639) John H (Sanford, FL)
3/21/2010 in Marietta, GA  EVENT: 20th Marietta Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Sober 21 years since 4/18/1988, John tells a great story of what Keith L, a beloved speaker from NC, did at John's first conference, just out of prison, that might have been his last.

He has been sponsored by three great speakers in their own right - Lee Y of Orlando, Ed M, the first speaker in the WeJoy collection and Dick A of Georgia.

Lee told him this Program was free. John said,

"Where I had come from everything had a price tag on it. Nothing was free."

Everybody told him he was an alcoholic of the hopeless variety.

"It's been 11 years since I had to jump a fence. Now when I see a police officer I don't see him as my enemy. I see a police officer as an outstanding citizen doing a good job in society to keep us safe."
