Mark Zuckerberg on Yom Kippur: ‘I ask forgiveness’

The head of Facebook posted this on his page last night:

Tonight concludes Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year for Jews when we reflect on the past year and ask forgiveness for our mistakes. For those I hurt this year, I ask forgiveness and I will try to be better. For the ways my work was used to divide people rather than bring us together, I ask forgiveness and I will work to do better. May we all be better in the year ahead, and may you all be inscribed in the book of life.

I’m trying to remember the last time I read something like that from a chief executive of a company that large and globally significant—especially a man who, not so very long ago, was an admitted atheist.

May he “be inscribed in the book of life.” God isn’t finished with him yet.
