      Praying too

      I’m praying for her and her family and have forwarded the link to a prayer group to which I belong on the Amish Living website. Thank you Erik for bringing it to our attention.

    I wonder if the State will press charges. If convicted it could be tragic for the rest of the family. Having the man of the farm removed could spell trouble as no one would be available to get things done and sustain the farm. Naturally I’m assuming the family farms for a living. I’m sure the church will step up in any event as that is what Amish do.

      Wow, really think they needed that right now. If you read the story her father was shooting rodents. Guns are not evil the person who uses it for bad is evil.

    • Guns are a tool many people including Amish use. There is a safety discussion to be had and hopefully others leaving loaded guns in easy access to young children take a lesson. No doubt the father must now deeply regret leaving the gun out, but at this point I just hope the girl makes it.

    So so very sad.. for all of the children.. what a nightmare.

    Im really surprised that those kids werent taught gun safety.. I was raised with guns and my dad instilled gun safety in us starting while we were still in diapers.. I’ve found that kids who are taught gun safety very early on are not the ones who get into trouble with guns.. its the untrained ones.

    Another senseless tragedy. I’m sure the father is beside himself, yet I know most Amish would consider it God’s will. Leaving a loaded shotgun within reach of children under 5 is just so PREVENTABLE. But what do I know?

    Amish girl shooting

    Praying for this little one and also all her family. May they find strength and comfort as Our Lord provides abundantly in our time of need. What Satan means for evil, God can turn to beauty…Our prayers open Heavens door and meet our every need. The Lord Bless and keep you.

    Care fund for hospitalized girl

    A fund has been set up to help this family. She’s had 3 surgeries and is likely to need more. From the Sharon Herald article linked below:

    “Donations can be made at any First National Bank of Pennsylvania location or at Amish Oak Showcase Furniture, 2031 Mercer-New Wilmington Road, New Wilmington. All checks should be made payable to Amanda Byler Fund.”
