Sorry Messages

It is one of those words that are hard to say – sorry. Even the song by Elton John says it all – ‘Sorry seems to be the hardest word’; but many a times, it is the most important word to say between two people in any relationship.

Without it, misunderstandings can be rife; holding it back can cause a relationship to extinguish. In contrast, letting it out in sincerity can break the hardest of hearts to heal a relationship.

Sorry messages can be written by all types of people; lovers, friends, family, colleagues, authorities. When one party acknowledges his error, he can apologize in many ways. It can be written in a direct and simple manner in a personal letter; he can express his apologies personally in person to the hurting party; he can broadcast it in full sincerity to win the other party over as in some printed matter like a newspaper print apology or a billboard apology.

There can be sorry messages which are not limited to individuals in a personal relationship. Sorry messages can also come from organizations to organizations in situations such as the infringement of copyrights where a public sorry message is required instead of legal action against the company at fault.

This kind of public ‘sorry’ message usually requires a full page of apology by the company in error to the one that is wronged. Infringement of copyright is a serious misdemeanor in many countries but sometimes, an out-of-court settlement can be reached amiably depending on the circumstances of the case.


Below is a sample ‘Sorry’ message letter that is printed in the newspaper by one organization which has infringed the copyright of another organization.
