The Amish as a witness

These people live what I only aspire toward, imperfect and mired in anger and the refusal to forgive as I am.

This will humble you. Could we in the "English" world do the same?

Hey, ms.cornelius. Did I see somewhere that you grew up in Sidney, NE? I grew up in Morrill, just down the road from Scottsbluff. Another Panhandler achieves greatness.

No, bud. I'm an Okie. Not a yankee (and I say that with all love!)
