The Power Of An ApologyI'd like to take a break from the usual stories in this experieince, but definatly not from the heart of it's subject to honor someone who deserves it.
This week national headlines were made when MLB umpire Jim Joyce's blown call cost Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga a perfect game. In a rare act of contrition for an umpire, Joyce apologized to Galarraga and took responsiblity for what he did wrong.
Of the incident, Flirting with Faith blogger Joan Ball said " In a country that has come to view live and let live as socially polite, people can forget that our actions have an impact on those around us"
How very true.
