  1. Amy Locane-Bovenizer:

    You think about second chances, for me, it was my second chance. I had done everything humanly possible since the day of the accident — just everything humanly possible — to make amends. To get my act together. And I guess for the judge to recognize that, that’s probably by what I meant [it was a blessing]. But it was a gift.

  2. Bruce Maxwell:

    Accepting responsibility is the first step in working to make amends for my lapse in judgement. I am truly sorry for the pain that my actions have caused, and while they are not representative of who I am, I understand that I have to earn back the trust and respect of those around me, there remains the possibility that the league could impose discipline for Maxwell’s guilty plea to disorderly conduct. Typically MLB waits to see outcome of legal process before making a decision.

ROLLING IN THE MUCK IS NOT THE BEST WAY OF GETTING CLEAN.

  5. Tonya Harding:

    I don’t want her anywhere near me. I don’t want her anywhere near my son, she wants forgiveness. She wants to see me. She wants to make amends. She wants to meet and be part of the family. Hell no.
