ignorance (vs?) ignoring

"Oh ma'am, please do not feel slighted. It was simply a matter of ignorance on the part of the child."

ignorance...ignorance...hmmm.. ignorance. ignore...ignore....ignorance....hmmm...

a matter of ignoring?

is ignorance when you ignore something?
so ignorance is not an excuse?

ah but one is intentional and one is not.
right? right?
