Who remembers sorry everybody.com & apologies accepted.com after 2004 election? Could use them now!

Sorry everybody.com came out just after the 2004 election and and apologies accepted.com was the world's respone. We could use an updated version now!

For those too young to know about sorryeverybody.com, the website is no more, but here is the Wikepedia entry for Sorryeverybody.com:

Sorry Everybody was a website created after the 2004 United States presidential election, which invited U.S. citizens to apologize to the world in advance for the actions of George W. Bush in the next four years. Its most prominent feature was the gallery, which contains images submitted by visitors holding various apology notes. The website became massively popular in the aftermath of the presidential elections, leading some Bush supporters to create spinoffs to express they were not sorry.

The website was created by James Zetlen, an American neuroscience student who was at the time in the third year of his undergraduate program at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. The first photo was taken by Zetlen of himself, in his home in Los Angeles on November 3, 2004, just after the concession of John Kerry in the 2004 U.S. presidential election (which had been held a day earlier, on November 2, 2004). Zetlen's photo inspired thousands more similar contributions from U.S. citizens, and he compiled a gallery of 8,000 of these photos on his website and published a 256-page book containing approximately 1,000 of them, entitled Sorry Everybody: An Apology to the World for the Re-election of George W. Bush.

Apologiesaccepted.com was the world's response to sorryeverybody.com and that website still exists:
http://apologiesaccepted.com/index.html

"We, wanderers of the world outside the US, have been touched by the initiative of www.sorryeverybody.com, and the huge amount of photos they received. The initiators of this website would like to show to the American people that they appreciated that message."

Return of the King had come out the year before and LOTR was all the rage. This was my favorite post:



It's the last entry on this page:

I didn't hold onto it, because I didn't think I'd need it again!

8. If you're roughly the same size..

He may be willing to give it back to you, or at least loan it out for a few days.

6. a few differences are the russian hack amd trump losing popular vote

Better would be trying to expose all the shit on trump.

And we need the international community to help with things like the investigations and protesting him. Especially if he goes to their country .

9. I still have my sorryeverybody.com long-sleeve tee.

It's so worn out I pretty much just wear it while doing yard work... holes, frayed edges, everything. Spent so much time scrolling through those uplifting pics and messages.
