But I did want to draw attention to the Amish response to the murder of 5 children. They are offering forgiveness from the start.
"As we were standing next to the body of this 13-year-old girl, the grandfather was tutoring the young boys, he was making a point, just saying to the family, 'We must not think evil of this man,' " the Rev. Robert Schenck told CNN."It was one of the most touching things I have seen in 25 years of Christian ministry."
Later in the article: "I don't think there's anybody here that wants to do anything but forgive and not only reach out to those who have suffered a loss in that way but to reach out to the family of the man who committed these acts."
