Example

We are deeply sorry that our people, workers in the health and welfare field like ourselves, believed that it was right to dislocate your families; to decide what was and wasn’t right for your people; and to disregard the protests that your people made at every step along the way. We are deeply saddened that our people’s actions tore mothers from children and split children from their people, their land, their histories and ways of understanding. We are sorry for the tremendous grief caused to parents and extended families when their children were taken from them. We wish to acknowledge that the consequences of our people’s actions live on. We are deeply sorry not only for the actions of those who came before us, but for our own lack of understanding of the consequences of these actions. We are also deeply sorry for our own lack of action. We wish to acknowledge the fact that there is still ongoing removal of your children and young people from your families and communities by current welfare, juvenile justice and prison systems. We wish to acknowledge that saying sorry by itself is not enough. In order to prevent the need for our future generations to apologise for current injustices we must accompany these words with actions. We wish to acknowledge that what we have done has degraded all of us and that we are grateful for the opportunity you have offered us to come to terms with our past. By your willingness, courage and generosity to share your stories with us, we have been offered another chance to understand and to respond. We are very sorry. (Dulwich Centre, 1998)
