In 1994 Michael Cusick began a journey of recovery from sex addiction. In the process he became heartbroken at the realization that “we live in a world where women are treated as if their only real value is to gratify men’s sexual desire” In 2013 Michael wrote A Plea to Women for Forgiveness. When I read it I immediately felt the need to share his sentiments in song.
We now offer The Apology as a response to the sexism and wounding women have experienced at the hands of men. If you’ve been personally wounded Michael and I hope this song will meet you wherever you are on the healing journey. For men, we hope this song will make you aware of the ways -perhaps even unintentionally – you’ve participated in a culture that treats women as second-class citizens, rather than children of God.
May this song offer opportunities for dialogue that will lead to awareness, understanding, apology, healing, forgiveness, and reconciliation.
