Chances are you've had to apologize sometime in your life -- whether you felt you did something wrong or not. But why are apologies so important, and why are they so hard to get right? We'll discuss apologies: private, public and the ones we've never made. We welcome your stories of apologies that were meaningful to you and offer you a chance to make that apology you always wish you had -- on air.
