Even we sneeze, talk or walk we might or without our knowledge we are killing many germs and insects or do something else - any actions could have hurt someone, we should not hesitate to ask for forgiveness. Knowingly or unknowingly. Intentionally or unintentionally, if you have hurt someone by your thought, word, or, deed- you ask that they forgive you.
