Amish Shooting Anniversary
Posted on Saturday, Oct 01, 2011
The community and families of the five girls killed and five others wounded in an Amish schoolhouse shooting plan no events to mark the fifth anniversary of the attack. Christ King, the father of one of the surviving girls - still dealing with severe brain injuries - said in a brief statement, "Thank you again to everyone for your support and encouragement." It was read at a recent daylong conference at Elizabethtown College: The Power of Forgiveness: Lessons From Nickel Mines.
