I would like to begin by stating my upmost and genuine need for forgiveness, I do not know if I deserve it, but the guilt I incur every day without it weighs heavily on me. I feel as if I am empty without at least formally apologizing for the mistakes I made that fateful night five years ago. This was the night I not only lied to you, mom and dad, but also put myself in great danger and was selfish beyond belief. The night started as regular as can be, I and five friends were staying over my buddy Hunter’s house.

As a parent you have one major role, and that is the safety of your child, so I feel disgusted with myself to say I’m the reason my mother and father felt they let didn’t succeed in their job. I know how measly this may seem, all this time later but I truly, from the bottom of my heart would like to ask for forgiveness for this atrocity that occurred due to my negligence. Please know that this isn’t just me asking for forgiveness, but me begging to be given a second chance at responsibility and trustworthiness. Please forgive me so that I can show you I still carry these qualities and know that this forgiveness will not be in vain. I know how menial it sounds, but I can promise you that I will never let this happen again, and promise that I will always respect your wishes when it comes to things I should and should not do. Finally I would like to leave off by saying thank you for my constant protection
