Anger and resentment

Readers comment on the September 2002 AA Grapevine

I would like to address the point of whether the editors of the Grapevine broke Tradition Ten in the September 2002 issue by printing articles by their fellow alcoholics expressing their experience, strength, and hope concerning the attack of 9/11. I read the magazine cover to cover, and I did not read a single thing about politics. I read a magazine that seemed to me to be about anger and resentment, probably two of the best excuses (not reasons) for alcoholics to pick up a drink. The issue also covered forgiveness and prayer, two of the best ways to stay sober when anger and resentment rear their ugly heads.
