5. I'm sickened - not guilty - of the behavior and beliefs of our ancestors.
Heartbroken that we, as people, couldn't see the hate and judgment in what we were doing.

I like the fact that the House - the Government - will be acknowledging how very wrong we were, and how very wrong that behavior is.

I don't feel guilty, but I feel a responsibility to try to see that it never happens again.
