    PA - Five girls dead, 5 injured in Amish school shooting, 2 Oct 2006

    Just heard on CNN:

    Apparently multiple people have been shot at a Lancaster County, PA one room school house. It is reported to be an Amish school. Not sure yet if there is a hostage situation. My GOD, what's the world coming to?

    Who would ever have thought something like this would happen in an Amish community? The world gets crazier by the day.

    I am trying to see if I recognize the location of this farm and school......but, they are not showing enough.
    Such nice, quiet people who keep to themselves.
    This looks like outside of the tourist area. It is so beautiful watching them farm in the old fashioned ways.

    Paradise

    It seems this is in the town of Paradise. Towns are close to each other and blend together. Neighboring towns are Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse (no joke)
    They are saying on MSNBC that the schooling only goes to 8th grade. It is being reported an angry man showed up there. Confirmed by WGAL channel.
    Lancaster has gotten 3 patients age 6 to 16.......Hershey medical Center may have someone airlifted there.

    I am sure most of the true Amish didn't even know about the other school shootings we have had recently. Most have no electric and do not bother with the outside world issues. The farms are so beautiful with the old age ways. Sometimes you can look on a mountain top and see the silhouette in black of a horse with a young boy behind pushing a plow. Or you can see teenagers all together on the back of a hay wagon being pulled by horses. Just a slow, simple united way of living. All the black buggies passing by, or parked at the General Store. Kids arriving home on skooters, or sitting in a wagon and pushing it along with one foot. How sad for this close knit, tight group.
    It seems to say 5 have died. A very sad day for the Lancaster area.
    They will all gather together soon..........that is what they tend to do.
