    I think it’s lovely how the Amish all gather ’round each other in times of grief; well, actually in all things. It seems there is much we can learn from the Amish about the fundamentals of being decent human beings with a strong sense of community.

    My family, Polish from the Detroit area do the same thing. This is not just an Amish ‘thing’ this is a close family ‘thing’ as well as a neighbor ‘thing’. This is one of the values I love about our family.
