    Last month I wrote about forgiveness after abuse. In keeping with that train of thought, I’d like to write about the apology many survivors of all types of abuse never receive. Would that apology make a difference? Would it somehow provide closure? Or would it simply reignite anger and hurt and seem insincere or not enough?

It’s also one that has no easy or quick answer but I will try and tackle it here.  First, let me say that there is no right answer. Forgiveness itself is a moving target and for me it is a (possibly lifelon ...
