Writer's Block: Youthful Transgressions

What mistake made in your youth do you most regret now?
I nearly killed a child.  He was a year older than I, of a different race.  He was 12, I was 11.  Older kids made us fight.  Instead of hating the older kids we hated each other, or at least I hated him.  He was spear fishing at the falls, I passed by on a bridge above.  I threw a stone, it hit him.
That was all.  I did many things after that that had more disasterous consequences for me and others, but they were not done in malice.  This stands out because on reflection, it was assault; and, but for the grace of providence, murder.
