Priscilla does a wonderful job of not only eloquently expressing her feelings about saying sorry, but also mine (thanks P.)
I too have set my Facebook status to say I’m sorry – but I’ll also repost what Priscilla says ‘coz it’s exactly what I want to say too:
I regret that this happened to you, and I realise that it caused suffering and anguish for you and your family. I hope this never happens again.
P.S. I feel like this new government is sorting out a whole bunch of unfinished business. Still lots to do, but we’ve signed Kyoto, and now said sorry (both of which are far too long overdue). In the coming weeks WorkChoices will be scrapped. It’s progress – but back to the starting-line, not forward. Hopefully the momentum will continue to push across the line…
