Is it possible to forgive somebody if they do something horrible and later apologize? Is it possible to accept the apology, but still enforce discipline? Or is the only way out is to reject the apology and enforce discipline? It depends on the nature of the crime. It depends on the sincerity of the apology. I guess it's possible to accept somebody's apology and still enforce discipline. The criminal truly has to be loathsome in order to commit a crime so horrible that the apology is rejected before discipline is enforced. And the loathsome crime has to be harsher than expected for the rejection of the apology to be uttered in over the top hate filled emotion while enforcing discipline. It's far better not to commit a crime that causes such heated emotion in the first place. Be honest. Be pure. Be noble. More important, treat everybody with respect so that the first impression is the most positive impression of all time so that everybody will think highly of you later down the road.
And as I'm lost in thought during the scorching hot Summertime, here are some photos of Julianne Hough and her brother Derek Hough.
