Click to Hear > http://www.voicewings.com/4082.wma Iím Sorry Hank ========= Iím sorry Hank. Hank Smith was a boy in my elementary school class. I was ten years old. Itís been nearly 40 years ago. Iím sorry Hank. What did I do that was so terrible to Hank nearly 40 years ago? I was a part of a group who taunted Hank. We made fun of him. We teased him. Why? Because Hank was overweight. At the time, I simply followed the crowd. It was the cool thing to do. Everyone else did it, why not me too? I had very little knowledge of hurting others feelings or the lifelong damage such a thing could do. I was ignorant, but still I participated in the damage. All of us have things that we wish we could change. We look back and say, ďHow could I have done that?Ē "What type of person was I?" We all have those kinds of things in one area or another. I was writing material for something that involved forgiveness, both forgiving others and asking for forgiveness for the wrong that we've done, when Hankís face popped up before me. I can still see him after all of those years. I realized long ago the wrong that I had done. I just have never asked for forgiveness. Iím sorry Hank. I didnít know. I didnít feel. I didnít realize. Oddly enough, I remember Hank vividly though it's unlikely that he remembers me. He no doubt remembers the jesting, but I was simply another face in the crowd. Nearly 40 years ago, at West Manor Elementary School in Atlanta, I participated in hurting another human being. Iím sorry Hank ...and I ask you for your forgiveness. ~A MountainWings Original~ Click for Spoken Version > http://www.voicewings.com/4082.wma Other Spoken Issues > http://www.voicewings.com Thank you for inviting MountainWings in your mailbox.
