Letter writer offers apology, explanation

I apologize for the letter expressing my beliefs about diplomacy as opposed to war with Iran in Tuesday's Clarion. More precisely this letter was written by the Vice President of Veterans for Peace and I failed to acknowledge his authorship. It was so well written I succumbed to my desire to look good and to claim association with his ideas without realizing that I was plagiarizing him. I am sorry for doing so.

Letter writer apologizes for actions

Hello, my name is Chaunce Hoxie, and last year for two months I was running around town breaking into people's houses, stealing their belongings, and terrorizing the neighborhood. I am writing this to tell the people that I did this to that I am sorry. I know saying this won't change what I did or fix the damage I caused, but I have to start fixing what I did somewhere. I have been in the Wildwood Correctional Center for 12 months and I have had a lot of time to reflect on what I did and how everyone must have felt. Losing your belongings that you worked hard to get and keep. Who am I to take your things? No one should have to worry in the safety of their own home. I will be returning to Anchor Point on Feb. 6, 2011, to start a new life and not make the same mistakes, to turn a new page in my life and look to the future. I ask for forgiveness from all of you for what I did and hope we can build a new trust between us. And I am sorry.
