The wait for “I’m sorry”

This is an emotional piece of writing passed along to me today by my friend Matt. Several other friends who commented on my Facebook post said things like, “Goosebumps” or “Made my morning.” Be prepared.

From The Oregonian:

“As the days passed, I thought about this strange tale. There was no news. If no one ever heard a word about James Atteberry and Larry Israelson, it wouldn’t matter.

Or would it?

A good feature story is about something universal. When it comes to apologies, no one gets a pass in this life. Everyone deserves one, and everyone needs to give one.”
