belated Yom Kippur wishes

I'm late with this and apologize, but please accept my belated wishes for a humble and mindful Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement. If it's any consolation, I think that any day in which we're conscious of the wrong we do can serve as Yom Kippur.

It may sound corny, but one of my favorite moments in the otherwise-goofy "The Thirteenth Warrior" was the prayer uttered by Antonio Banderas's character, Ibn Fadlan:

For all we ought to have thought
but have not thought
For all we ought to have said
but have not said
For all we ought to have done
but have not done
I pray thee, God, for forgiveness
