the iApologize Movement
On November 25,1997
on November 25, 1997, a young man, Jason Crawford, physical life was cut short because of my ignorance. However his death was not in vain, as life has revealed to me that you were a sacrifice. Your death was my resurrection as I had impacted so many lives in a constructive way, because you have accepted my apology which has allowed me to move forward in life. If it was not for your existence, my life would be insignificant. So I owe the creator and you a lifelong commitment to the service of humanity. Until we meet again rest in peace my brother, I apologize. From Rashawn Sullivan.
