“National Sorry Day”
That’s today, in Australia. It’s meant as a sort of continuing apology to Aboriginal peoples in Australia specifically for the practice, lasting up until about 1970, of taking Aboriginal children from their families (known as the “stolen Generations”), but also for the general mistreatment. It’s not a holiday but appears to be an official commemoration.
My question: could Americans come around to instituting something similar for all of our national transgressions? My guess is that we’re not there yet. But it’s an intriguing idea, and you might get some genuinely-felt buy-in (this said the day after Memorial Day, which many take seriously but perhaps others not so solemnly any more).
