The Rebirth of the American Civic Association

Almost a year after the tragic shooting of April 3, 2009 that claimed 13 lives in the space of a few minutes, the ACA will shine once again.  It will reopen for the first time since that tragic day that, indirectly, triggered the birth of this blog.

I will not be in town tomorrow for the open house, but I am excited.  I pass near the ACA every day on the way to work.  While it isn't quite on the scale of those who passed Ground Zero on the way to their New York City jobs, it is a sober reminder of how fragile life can be, and how our sense of control is an illusion.

May the ACA prosper in its post-shooting life, along with the rest of downtown Binghamton.
