rsz_400187010_640I love this film clip from ManyFaces1Voice! So enthusiastic, energetic and inspiring. I feel the recovery. Thank you, Neil. Film clips like this form the making of the film The Anonymous People by Greg Williams make a difference. There’s real Recovery Energy in the US!

We’re not looking to you to take care of us, we’re going to take care of each other. When you come to your senses and realize there is a better way, we’ll be here.'”
