Recovery Community Mourns the Loss of a Hero

When we think of an example of how our personal recovery can be a light for the rest of the world, and who models the kind of life that we aspire to live, Bruce Huberman is one of those inspirations. Service to humanity happens on so many different levels, and thankfully in a colorful variety of ways to which there is no end. The people who most inspire us are the ones who take service to the max; the people who create new ways to support others, who collaboratively strive to bridge the gaps, who see something missing and in turn, see an opportunity to create a new possibility. Bruce did this - he took service to the max and humbly helped more people than can ever be counted. 

Not only was Bruce in service to the mutual aid fellowship of his choosing, Bruce was extraordinarily in service to the larger recovery community.  Through the innovative creation of his award winning 12 Step Gazette recovery magazine in 2008, Bruce created a new vehicle for the local recovery community to share information, ideas, resources, events and entertainment.  The readership of the 12 Step Gazette would go on to reach over 10,000 and act as a mechanism to broaden the support an individual in or seeking recovery could access. 

If a heroic life is all about overcoming your own challenges in order to leave this world better off than you found it, then Bruce led a heroic life in every sense of the word.  Bruce created something new that would go on to impact people in a uniquely profound way, and the recovery community and larger world is better off as a result.

Our hearts go out to those closest to him, who have lost who he was in all of his humanity. For those of us who were touched by his gifts, our hearts are full of joy for having had an example of a life well lived.
