    Thank you Dr. Bell for this conversation with Bobby Coffey and I will be posting it on my FB page. I purchased the documentary “The Anonymous People” and I’m holding screenings at homes of my fellow friends in recovery. This was very informative and I am trying to spread the word that we need to show the world that recovery can last! Again, kudos to you sir!

      And thank you, Bonnie for your thoughtful comments. Bobby Rocks, and I’m reminded of Margaret Mead’s now famous quote, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Much gratitude to you and yours, Bonnie.
