Thanks Bill

On this date in 1971, the 53rd Anniversary of his marriage to Lois, Bill W. died. What can we say, except "Thanks, Bill."

It's an odd thing, every year around the time of Bill Wilson's death I start thinking just how much difference one man (or woman) can make.

Lots of great things have been written about Bill over the years and there can be no doubt that what Bill and DrBob started in the mid thirties has saved and changed many, many lives.

But let's remember, Bill was just a man. A great man no doubt, but a man all the same. And this is important, it's important because if just a man like Bill Wilson can make such a long lasting change in the world, so can we.

Thanks Bill.
