If you get a chance this movie is good and you can watch it on line for free here: http://www.mylifetime.com/watch-full-movies-online/amish-grace A friend told me about it and so I watched it last night. It is based on the true story of the Amish who experienced the killing of their children at thier little one room school house and how they could forgive in such a way that was demonstrated at that time. Don't worry it does not show any of the killing. It really makes one think and reflect on how one can forgive and why we are to forgive. It goes into this subject of forgiveness.
I also just finished reading a true book about that dealt with this subject of forgiveness. This book was about the Rwandan Genocide and how this lady who went through the Rwandan Genocide (over a million killed) had spent over 90 days hidden in a bathroom with about 7 others. Her family all was killed except for a brother who was out of the country. In her book she tells how and why she has to forgive.
Both of these stories are good, and they were both such an amazing story about how to forgive something that is horrendous. It explains why we can forgive and about giving the justice to God, etc but I thought you might enjoy the movie. I like movies that make me think and this one on the Amish killings does. It is not the typical type of movie that you would just say , oh I want to see, because the subject is so difficult. But If you get the time it is well worth watching and reflecting on.
Here is some from the Movie:
I have just ordered the book, also called Amish Grace --here is a review given by Bill Moyers on the book.
