In Memory of April 3, 2009

What a beautiful, sunny day today.   Our crocuses are up.  Neighbor's forsythia is blooming.  Spring has come to the Southern Tier of NY.

Tomorrow we see my brother in law and catch up with his life since March.

Life goes on.

And....  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 will let this commentary speak for me.

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

This doesn't have any direct tie to autism but I wanted to mention this because it impacted our community so heavily.

Tomorrow is Easter, with its religious symbolism of rebirth.  But for today, the thoughts of our community are with the families of the 14 victims of April 3, 2009.
