US Apology

Below are links to the Apology that both the US House of Representatives and US Senate, between 2008 and 2009, gave as a resolution regarding Chattel Slavery, Jim Crowism and Lynching.

I have added some commentary to these apologies and why I think they are so significant as well in other links below also.

Psalms 51

1. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. 2. Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. 3. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. 4. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

James 5:15

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
