Wanting for needing
Ramirez spent a lot of time repenting for past Sox sins, but he was most contrite about the incident with [Jack] McCormick, [Red Sox team traveling secretary].
“Yes, yes, yes, I went and spoke to Jack,” he said. “I apologized to Jack. I said, ‘Jack, I want you to forgive me because it was my fault. I behaved bad here with everybody. I want you to forgive me.’ He said, ‘Manny, thank you. I was waiting for that.’ ”
McCormick confirmed to the Globe’s Nick Cafardo that he accepted Manny’s apology.
We humans are a needy crowd. We need so much and so many, and our needs are far-ranging. We get what we need only to need what we want.
We need what we really want, but do we want what we really need?
Do we want forgiveness? Do we need it?
