Amish community fund

I'm reposting something I read on labyrinthman's LJ, about a fund that has been set up by the Amish community affected by the recent tragedy in Nickel Mines, PA. Actually there are two funds. From wordweaverlynn's post:
Moreover, two funds have been set up by the Old Order Amish community to accept donations. One is the Nickel Mines Children's Fund. The other is the Roberts Family Fund, for the Children of the Roberts Family.

The Roberts Family is the family of the gunman.

I think that speaks volumes about what kind of people the Amish are.

Donations to both funds can be sent to:

Whatever your beliefs, I think this degree of forgiveness is as good an example of how to live as you'll find anywhere.
