Lip Service

By Stanley Collymore

A genuine apology for an injustice which one has
caused and whose disastrous consequences for
the person wronged the wrongdoer fully
understands and seriously wants to
make full amends for is a highly commendable
thing, but apologizing merely for lip service
with no real intention of actually accepting
the harm that one has done and because
the wronged person isn’t of the same
mindset as the perpetrator and
therefore such behaviour is totally
alien to that person’s character is
no apology worth its salt, and
should not only be roundly
dismissed by the victim
involved but also under
no circumstance
at all ever be
accepted.
