    I have been particularly interested in learning more about the Amish and their customs and in doing so have read dozens of books about them, mostly light fiction, but several non-fiction as
    well and particularly enjoyed seeing these pictures. I’m planning a trip to Northern Indiana to look at Amish quilts as well as other specialties made by the Amish and am also hoping to enjoy a good meal at an authentic Amish restaurant. I am so impressed and respectful of the plain life chosen by these unusual and unworldly people, and wish more of us could adopt their appreciation of the fine but often overlooked and under-appreciated gifts of mother nature. Their values could go a long way towards teaching young people to set their priorities for daily living on a more charitable and honest set of values despite the fact than not many would choose to totally forego their “English” style of living. If even just simple but improved morals of the young Amish could influence our youth we would see a dramatic drop in violence and unrest that seem to prevail in today’s society and the world as we know it would be a much better place to live and raise our children. Progress in manufacturing and electronics can certainly improve some aspects of our every day living, but I wonder if those advantages aren’t exaggerated when you compare the differences in the happiness and real satisfaction of the Amish and “English.”
