Sami Pfeffer,
The Archive of Apologies and Pardons

The Archive asks for healing – come and contribute an apology and a pardon to our collective body of remorse. The apology will not reach the person to whom it is addressed; the pardon will not reach the person to whom it is offered. Practice speaking up! Name harm you’ve experienced, name harm you’ve enacted. Practice is necessary for healing; each of us deserves an apology and each of us hopes for a pardon.
