That Day One Year Ago in Binghamton, NY

What a beautiful, sunny day today.  In honor of spring, spouse planted some pansies in the front yard.  Our crocuses are up.  Some of our daffodils have buds.  Neighbor's forsythia is blooming.

Life goes on.

If you go back to my very first blog post of April 10, 2009 you will understand what this entry speaks of.  One year ago, our community suffered a random act of violence that took the lives of 12 recent immigrants, a teacher and a dedicated social worker at the American Civic Association in Binghamton, NY.

Our local paper had a very nice commentary. I couldn't have said it better myself so I will let this commentary speak for me.

This is in memory of the victims of the shooting of April 3, 2009.

May the sun shine on their families today, may they hear the birds singing, and may they know many in this community think of them today.
