Sorry Is the Hardest Thing to Say Even Though May Not Be Enough
by Nana Gyamfi-Kumanini
If people learn to ask for forgiveness, will the world we live in today be different?
In Sorry Is the Hardest Thing to Say Even Though May Not Be Enough, Dr. Nana Gyamfi-Kumanini distinguishes relationship between lovers, colleagues, and nations, describing each to give a clear picture on what instances each individual or nation avoids admitting faults.
Pride and the difficulty to say sorry are two relevant concepts that make people from all walks of life negligent toward confessing guilt and making amends. Even the most influential leaders of nations, having mistakenly put their citizens’ lives at stake for either the nation’s or the leader’s propaganda or both, bail their ways out of apologizing to those whom they caused pain and harm. The thought is to diminish those who think they are superior than the other, thus taking advantage of those who they think are inferior to them. As Abraham Lincoln said, “You can fool some of the people all the time and all of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.”
In this selection, the author advocates ideas such as reciprocity, peace loving, and togetherness as what this world lacks at present in order to maintain peace, and the way people act or choose their path is influenced by the system around them because all of us are given the free will to choose what we think is best for all of us and not just what we think is right. When worse comes to worst and the misdeed of the superiors are being known, no one is exempted from saying, “I am sorry.”
