Bee Akins, Cone Mental Health, was speaker at our last club meeting. Bee talked about how stress, anger, low self-esteem, hopelessness & other root causes can contribute to alcohol abuse, illicit use of drugs, diet & activity patterns, can end up in diabetes, stroke, heart and liver diseases, firearms, suicides. Recovery components can be many but must start with the individual & can be aided by peers, families, churches, hospitals, and communities.

"To Love is not to give of your riches but to reveal to ohers their riches, their gifts & their capacity to grow." (Jean Vanier, Founder, L'Arche Community).
