I Am Sorry!
More than 200 years after the fact, the state House of Representatives voted Thursday to formally apologize for slavery in Connecticut.
I support this apology. I have felt tremendous guilt for slavery 200 years ago. And the Connecticut Representatives formal apology was a profile in courage to inspire us all!
However, the apology did not go far enough. In my video I also formally apologize for:
- Alexander the Great's invasion of Persia
- Rome’s invasion of what is now Spain and France
- The Norman invasion of 1066
Please accept my sincere apologies for these actions. I am SO sorry.
