First of all, I sincerely apologize to those who were hurt by my wrong words and actions during my school days. Remembering my actions in the days when I lacked more things than now, I feel ashamed and have no excuses. I realized that with my words and actions I hurt others, at a time when I did not know how to be considerate of them. It is too late, but I will reflect deeply. Regardless of whether it was intentional or not, I consider inflicting indelible wounds as something that cannot be forgiven. Even if I have apologized and they have accepted my apology, I know that the scars I have left in the past will not be completely erased, so I deeply regret it and am reflecting. I am ashamed, but I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to apologize in person to those who were hurt by me and for the opportunity to ask for forgiveness through this publication..
