“An apology is the super glue of life. It an repair just about anything.”  Lynn Johnston


O how we mighty fall
with tarnished armour and blunted sword
as the horse of self-righteousness bolts,
and yet, to offer repair in that very place of fear
with that simple five letter word that reignites hope.
