    I decided to pay my respect to teachers, and always pay attention and never speak while others are talking. I am very sorry once again. There is nothing else I can say. I apologize deeply. My actions were wrong I should not have laughed at you, or at the other teachers. Once again there was no humor in what you had to say. The punishment you gave us is ridiculous. This essay is all right, but the suspension, is not the right thing to do. There are kids that vandalize school property and skip class, and there punishment is minor. All they have is ISS or a 3/5. Were getting suspended if we don’t write an essay. I admit that it was wrong to laugh at you, I apologize for that. But, the punishment is ridiculous. I’m very sorry for my actions. And I promise that I will never act that way ever again. I am very sorry for disrespecting you and the teachers. My actions were wrong, and I would like to apologize for my rudeness towards you and the other teachers. It was wrong to laugh and disrespect you and the teachers. I am very sorry for everything I did, I should not of laughed, nothing was funny. I guess I just had the…

    Plato Apology

    • 1422 Words

    The term apology stems from the Greek word apologia which means ‘to defend’. In this essay I would like to explain why I believe that The Apology by Plato should be classified as pity and fear, in regards to Greek tragedy. I believe that this is true because I can personally empathize with Socrates; this will be discussed later on in this paper. A tragic hero is considered to be an individual with an intellectual flaw or error, Socrates fits this description; Socrates failed to understand that…

    was a Presocratic philosopher and Socrates was his student. Anaxagoras was an atheist, which led him to be exiled from Athens around 450 B.C. So the fact that Meletus likened Socrates against Anaxagoras was a serious charge in Athens. But in The Apology of Socrates, Socrates defends himself against these charges: “Therefore if I do believe in daimons, as you say, and if, on the one hand, daimons are gods of some sort, then this would be what I say you are riddling and jesting about, when you say…

Introduction An apology is arguably the most effective way for a defendant, or other alleged violator of an accepted legal standard, duty or obligation, to demonstrate their assumed responsibility for a wrong committed.’ Whether an apology is heartfelt, or more calculated and pro forma, there is little question that when an apology is delivered, its maker has assumed at least moral responsibility for the act or omission in question.2 Societies tend to respect individuals who “own up” to…
