"A stiff apology is a second insult...."

G. K. Chesterton

The passage of time does not heal all wounds; it cannot settle all accounts or resolve all disputes. But the identities of the perceived perpetrators can change, and a national apology's task is to document and record a symbolic act as a prelude to possible reconciliation and forgiveness. To achieve these ends, one's sincerity is paramount, especially when reading from a script.
