HOME IS WHERE MY HEART IS
This whole thing started with hearing and reading negative comments about where I live. The comments created the feeling that a prizefighter gets after getting knocked down to the canvas. While sitting there, the fighter contemplates staying down to lose the fight or get up and defend themselves. The decision that I made was to stand up and defend what I believed in. Back in the old day's families settled in the area where they were born. That was just the right thing to do. Today, things have changed as we have become much more of a mobile society. That is totally understandable however it’s important to never forget where you came from. I never believed that speaking badly about anything was good for your soul, especially about your hometown.
So, I got up from that canvas to defend the place that I love. That place is Binghamton in New York. The place where I grew up, the place where my wife and I raised our family. I learned many things about this city while writing this book. Things that I always seemed to be too busy to be bothered to learn in my younger years. Those that came here before us left a legacy of devotion that filled me with a deep feeling of pride. I can only describe it as the feeling of being home. HOME Is Where My Heart Is and My Heart is in Binghamton, NY.
