"I have always been brought up to acknowledge my mistakes once they have come to my attention and to apologise for any wrong I occasionally commit.
Not saying, 'Sorry' is like trying to put your arm around a regretful memory. Far far better to give the offended person a real hug today. Far better still for you when you become the midwife of a lost soul who has regretted past wrongs.
However, I have come across folk in this life who find the word 'Sorry' too hard to say. I don't know precisely what makes folk this way, but I do know that when this word is not a regular part of one's daily vocabulary, life becomes all the harder for both the oppressed and the oppressor, fewer things appear tolerable, the coarseness of insensitivity remains unrefined and raw emotions become ensnared within a barbed-wire mentality that keeps one trapped in the past.
I include one of my favourite songs which a friend initially introduced me to ; someone who has helped me out in my charity work on many occasions, the great Eric Clapton. It was written and sung by Elton John and is called, 'Sorry seems to be the hardest word.' " William Forde: August 19th, 2014.
