Project Forgiveness 2009

Welcome to Project Forgiveness. Here, we collect and post videos, emails, postcards and other expressions of regret from those who seek to forgive and from those who wish to express regret.

In the days leading up to the Jewish New Year, we offer this forum as a first step. It is our hope that sharing thoughts of forgiveness online will translate into actual forgiveness between individuals in the days to come.

How to participate? It's simple. Send us your "sorry" (upload a video to youtube and send us the link) or email us at: forgiveness or mail to:

Dear husband,
I'm sorry I can't seem to be interested in you physically.
I love you and I think you're good-looking.
I don't know why I feel this way.
your wife
Dear A,
I'm sorry I stalked you. I thought I loved you, and I really believed the palm reader who said you'd be with me forever.
I finally realize how much hurt I caused you and your wife.
Be well and I hope you can forgive me.

I'm sorry to Jennifer, Brad, Angelina, et al.

I'm sorry for my fascination with your lives, when they really are just that, YOUR lives and not anyone else's business.

Whether you swap BFs or BFFs, shave your head, refuse to wear underwear, or get arrested for DUI, it's your prerogative.

I'm sorry that the minutia of your daily existence pervades my weekend reading, and that the horrible paparazzo shot (sans makeup) makes me feel better on my darkest day. I'm sorry that I'm addicted to your melodramas like a couch potato to a bad soap opera. I'll try to understand that celebrities are real people too.

Whoops, I did it again - I bought US Weekly.

At, many of our employees spent years selling and building help desk software that was bound to fail and cost more than ever expected. We are sorry for the train wreck. We’ve learned from sins of the past and want to make it up to you. We’ve introduced the first IT service management software that is built on Web 2.0 technology and delivered via SaaS. We promise this is not the same legacy of customer abuse.
I would like to write a note saying that I forgive my husband. We have been having a difficult time & often I have blamed him for it. I want him to know that it is him being there for me that matters not the problems we have had. He is a good man & he needs to know that.
Google says sorry....

Lee Israel's "Can You Ever Forgive Me?: Memoirs of a Literary Forger" was featured on this morning's The TakeAway.

A review on reads, "Barely repentant and witheringly funny, Israel recalls her short life of literary crime as, first, the forger of signed letters by such personages as Dorothy Parker, Noel Coward, and Louise Brooks, and then, more desperately, an out-and-out thief of such documents, all for resale to dealers and collectors."

Does fessing up make someone worthy of forgiveness, or is true "repentant" attidude required?

And here it is... an apology....

"In 2006, I made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs," he said in a written statement. "I recognized my mistake and I told my wife that I had a liaison with another woman, and I asked for her forgiveness."


Ok, it's not an apology yet... but we're waiting...

In an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he did have an affair with 44-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he did not love her.
I'd like to apologize, in advance, for yelling at you when I catch you trying to sneak extra spices into my chulent...again.
