Remember that in this group like all others, some will forgive you, some will forget you, and some may never move on. However, your act of personal responsibility will go with you from this day forward. I know all to well the taste of my own shoe and your lesson today, wile hard learned, will carry you to greater places than you know. As Master Robin said, the next step is hard and the path is long, but there are those here that would gladly help you on it.

To make a hurtful mistake is all too easy.  To apologize is hard.

To apologize publicly when nobody knows you're the one who messed up is incredibly hard.

Today's act was well-done, and today's apology was well-written.  If you need help finding the next step, feel free to contact me at this email address (rudin at ev1.net).
