I am so impressed by the Amish of Nickel Mine. We need more models of forgiveness and non reactionary behavior.

I will think about that next time I try to hold a grudge or feel slighted.

I think we should write them letters telling them how they inspire us. Cuz otherwise they'll only be hearing from these guys:

Within a week of a series of school shootings across the country, the NRA has decided to dump a half million into four Senate races, including over a hundred grand in Pennsylvania (http://www.tpmcafe.com/blog/electioncentral/2006/oct/04/national_rifle_association_drops_500_000_into_races_across_u_s_a), where they're still burying five murdered Amish girls- on the day of the shootings.

I remember seeing an Amish guy being interviewed on tv once and he was asked if he thought Amish people were happier than most people, and he said that if he said Yes he felt would be bragging and therefore he didn't want others to think he was happier.

Such a deep sense of caring that he didn't want people to feel bad in any way about themselves.

So true. They are setting a wonderful example for the nation.
