Apology is one of the hardest words in the English language. When you realize that you’ve made a mistake and you have hurt other people in the process you owe it to those people to make amends. On February25, 2012, registered on D Magazine’s Front Burner Blog under the username of Dr. Hamilton, Kimberly Smith and I made a few untrue post about Pamela Martin Duarte (“Pamela”). The statements made by me about Pamela are not true. I had no basis for making such outrageous allegations. In fact, I mistook Pamela for another woman who I used to be acquainted with that has the same name.
I am truly sorry for the harm that my false statements have caused to Pamela and her family. I encourage those who engage in cyberbullying to think about the harm that their Mean spirited acts caused to those that they attack and to stop.
Settlement Response from Dena Miller and public apology to Pamela Martin-Duarte
— Pamela and Dena respect each other as strong, opinionated, intelligent Texas women who are both well-regarded professionals and philanthropists. Dena believes that women can be their own worst enemies and desire to not contribute to or participate in a game of destruction. Instead, seek to act as a positive force for women in the Dallas community and beyond. Pamela and Dena further deplore the cyber bullying that has become common throughout the country and that has manifested itself within the Dallas community. Cyber bullying, especially by anonymous individuals, is destructive to the victims and the community as a whole. Dena is sensitive to the harm that Pamela has suffered and supports Pamela’s efforts to protect her reputation and good name against the false comments posted to the D Magazine blog and the other community webpages and sites. As a result, Dena has endeavored to assist Pamela in identifying the source of the comments at the heart of the lawsuit. Dena encourages those who engage in cyber bullying to stop now and instead use their time to engage inpositive behavior that is beneficial to the community.
