How the Amish have dealt with the tragedy has truly amazed me. I don't know that I could be so forgiving. I know that I should absolutely be that forgiving, but I just don't know that I could. And amidst all that I have read regarding this tragedy, what I ready today just touched me beyond belief.
The oldest Amish girl to be killed, Marian Fisher who was 13, asked to be shot first. She wanted to try and buy some time for the younger girls. That is so absolutely brave and selfless that it moves me to tears. What an amazing girl. She showed more bravery than may adults would do in the same situation. Truly amazing. And an absolutely amazing expression of true Christ like love. Just amazing.
