An Open Apology To All

I am straight and I am sorry for taking for granted all the entitlement and privileges I receive in this world that you do not.

I am sorry for the cruel things I said to you in school.
I am sorry my thoughtlessness embarrassed you in front of others.
I am sorry for not extending my hand in friendship when I could have.
I am sorry for the tasteless jokes I said at the office.
I am sorry I made your work environment tough to go to each day.
I am sorry for the thoughtless comments you overheard me say to others.
I am sorry if your family did not support you when you came out or even rejected you.
I am sorry that you always have to be careful what you say around me.
I am sorry for all the times an ignorant comment from me made you feel less than.
I am sorry that I made you feel less of a man or woman.
I am sorry this is too little and too late in coming.

I am sorry, I was wrong and you did not deserve any of it.

With great respect and humility,

Shadow Sterling
