The rituals surrounding apology may differ, but it seems we all understand its importance and value.
There is a very touching example of this universal understanding of the value of apology coming from Libya. On Tuesday, the United States Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans were killed when the U.S. Embassy was attacked.
