A "moment of silence" in between blogging about my recent travels.
Today is the 2nd anniversary of the senseless shooting at the American Civic Association building on Front Street in downtown Binghamton.
So much has happened since then - sadly, these shootings continue, such as the recent tragedy in Tuscon, AZ demonstrate. And, several days ago, as (on our way home) we passed the exit for Virginia Tech and I remembered what happened there nearly four years ago.
For us here in Binghamton, what has been the aftermath? For the family, friends and surviving co-workers, life has gone on for them. Money is being raised for a memorial, but we "aren't there" yet. For the rest of us-knowledge that life can change in a split second.
Meanwhile, today, the anniversary will be marked quietly at the ACA building.
