My friend Julie writes that her cousin participated in a barn raising out and about Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, the site of the heinous school house shooting last week. A 100-year old barn that her cousin played in as a child caught some sparks from backyard burn and burnt to the ground. She sends fascinating pictures from her cousin's personal photo book that are well worth a look. She tells me that the only English (I read that as non-Amish) present are her cousin and his dad. The Amish are people that I admire deeply because they just live their life. They don't evangelize, they don't lecture, they don't judge. And they walk their talk. I pray for their healing and for the souls of their lost children. May they rest in peace.
