Something More than Selfish
Why do they come in here to talk to a bunch of cons?
SINCE BECOMING a member of AA, I've been asked many times, "Why do those people come in here almost every Sunday afternoon?" This question refers to the AA members from the outside who share the fellowship of AA with our group here in the Vermont State Prison at Windsor.
The frequency with which I am asked this question has led me to do some serious thinking. There are numerous things that these visitors could be doing on any given Sunday afternoon, especially during the summer months. Why, then, do they choose to come into a prison to talk to a bunch of cons?
