The Amish have given us incredible examples of Christianity in action. In October 2006, Charles Roberts, who was not Amish, shot 10 Amish girls at their school, killing five; he then took his own life. Members of the Amish community attended his burial, extending him forgiveness and, according to reports, even comforting his widow with hugs. In this photo, Amish woman Katie Weaver, left, embraces her daughter, Veronica Weaver, center, an Amish schoolteacher from Michigan, after the women came to the site of the killings to pray.
