An intensely emotional feeling.!!!!! I could feel all the sorrow at that kitchen Table around that coffee pot. But I also felt the hope. This was my dream for over 40 years to make this Pilgrimage to Dr . Bob's I was not disappointed.
What an AMAZING experience. It's strange that I live so close to where it all started and I haven't visited until founders day when it's packed full. I got goosebumps walking through this house, just thinking about all the things that happened in that house that helped AA continue to be the success it is today. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and professional. I got to do the third step prayer upstairs and it was such a spiritual experience. I will definitely be returning sometime in the near future to be able to take my time through the house. They've got a gift shop that you can get all sorts of neat things, my only recommendation would be for them to expand the gift shop to offer a wider variety of things. If you ever have the chance to check it out I HIGHLY recommend it.
What a great piece of history! I wonder if Dr Bob and Bill W could have ever imagined that their 12 step program would span the globe and touch the lives of so many people. Kudo's to these two for making a difference in the world!
In May I will be sober four years. In celebration I am going to work hard at taking a trip to Akron and all I want to do is sit on the steps of his house and reflect with gratitude. The impact AA has had in my life is something I will always do my best to convey to another alcoholic. I am so GRATEFUL!!!
Going to be there next week I've been sober 32 yrs and this will be one thing to right off my bucket list.
