This is a follow-up on the previous blog.
On 3/22/2012, Dharun Ravi said the words I was hoping and waiting for, "I'm sorry," in a press interview. He also explained why he had been quiet for so long.
He doesn't seem like a vicious, mean-spirited kid, but rather somebody who played the type of pranks that were perfectly acceptable before "Stonewall" in Greenwich Village.
. I think he never meant any harm. He is, like millions of other young people, a product of a culture that has trouble accepting any signs of homosexuality in others and in themselves.
There is hope for redemption. Dharun Ravi, you said the magic words. They coincide with the beginning of spring, with new life. For you and for us.
