Being Amish….

Lancaster County, PA – Amish Country

This is a pic of a postcard we bought there. There are many things about the Amish that I admire but their shunning is not one of them.They should not feel so insecure about their faith to have to turn their backs on the sons and daughters who choose to leave it.  Much of the land in Lancaster county is owned by Amish families and tourism is probably the main economic source of income there. So much so that it twists the real meaning of that religious sect.  If you want to get a glimpse of a more real Amish living you should try Berlin Ohio and its surroundings.
