Mr. Trump apologizes: America should too

Alveda King says repentant candidate 'is raising the bar of America's conscience'

Mr. Donald Trump is raising the bar of America’s conscience. Apology is often the first step in correcting a wrong. Having moved for a position of saying “I don’t need forgiveness,” Mr. Trump is now taking a second look at past behaviors; things that he’s said and done that he regrets. While he is not asking for forgiveness for being human, he is admitting that he’s made mistakes and humbly making apologies.

I don’t know about you, but not many human beings allow themselves to be put on the front page and television screens of the world, in such a vulnerable way as to expose every big and little decision and action in their lives, past and present. Someone like Mr. Trump, who has almost “had it all” and who must have the shortest “bucket list” in history likely has pretty good reasons for facing judgment’s firing squad to offer himself for the nation’s biggest job; President of The United States.

In apologizing for and correcting mistakes, boldly doing so before the entire world, Mr. Trump says he’s making the sacrifice for his children and grandchildren. That’s what’s at stake here folks; life now and forever. There is so much to lose, so much to gain for America’s children and grandchildren.

“That the generation[s] to come, even the children yet to be born, that they may arise and tell them to their children… that a people yet to be created may praise the LORD. Psalms 78 and 102

More civil discourse would be nice, but I have a bad feeling we're past that. It serves the interests of the powerful to keep us divided into Team This and Team That. It's almost as if they're afraid of what might happen if we the people start finding common ground.
