    May God bless all who’ve helped them and I pray for the comfort of the Holy Spirit and that the surviving family members feel the presence of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, especially in this difficult time. Amen!

    Thanks for sharing this information, including the links to the newspaper articles. It is good to know the non-Amish community is caring and sharing with the Hershbergers. I do not know the Hershberger family, but have driven by their place many times. Their farm is just up the road where an Amish woman,Lovina Miller, used to live and had a bulk food store where I’ve been many times.

    Building Codes

    As a professional emergency response professional for 46 years I can only say that the International Building Codes are my life and it is important to obey them in housing construction. It is important to train all Amish young on Fire Safety. At my new College of Chemical Engineering in Missouri being built among the Amish we will stress proper construction. No amount of money can bring back the deceased. SAFETY FIRST. Natural Gas and electricity are equally dangerous. I am currently working with North Dakota on a boiler that catches on fire because of burning Wood Chips in a health club. Many childrens lives at stake.

    God Bless those that lost their lives.

    From what I’ve read in this site and others, education in fire safety isn’t going to work if the bishop decrees that smoke detectors are not permitted. It seems that some of the Amish don’t value life to the extent that others do, ascribing to the “Well, it was God’s will” reply.

    Aloha Carol,

    Was the lack of smoke detectors the reason the two couldn’t get out, or was it something else? Did something blow up, which wouldn’t have had anything to do with having or not having a smoke detector? I’d like to know ’cause, obviously, it makes a difference.

    Thanks,
    Kiki

    Good will out

    Good to see help after a disaster works both ways in Amish territory. Not that I thought it wouldn’t! It’s proof that helping those who need help is the predominant human desire, despite the nastiness in today’s world. Makes one wonder about the rest of the world (ISIS, for example).

    Love never fails.

      The dangers of religion

      ISIS is a prime example of the inherent good of the majority of the world’s Muslims. There are 1,600,000,000 Muslims in the world (that is 1.6 Billion) and only 50,000 adhere to the dangerous zealotry and vicious evil of ISIS. That is way less than even half of one percent of all Muslims.

      On the contrary – about 600,000 Christians slaughtered almost 2 million Muslims in the name of God during the Crusades. And tens of thousands of non-Christians were burned at the stake in the Spanish Inquisition – also in the name of God.

      Religion, sadly, has been used for evil purposes presently and throughout history. I don’t blame religion – I blame sociopathic zealotry.

        The Dangers of Religion

        Judith,

        You’re right; lots of people who’ve claimed to know God and thought they’re doing Him a favor have done lots of things that were deplorable. This is what happens when men rely on their own opinions and prejudices to determine their deeds, instead of really asking God what HE wants done. This is not a forum for discussing the pros and cons of a belief system, but you need to realize the Amish are Christians and, like the colonists, have an ideology based on Judeo/Christian tenets. This is what sets them apart from the rest of the world. St. Paul reminds us that, as Christians, we’re not of this world though we are in it. Enough said.

    Alice Mary,

    “Love never fails” is part of the Judeo/Christian faith. ISIS is NOT, nor ever will be, anything like it, because its ideology is based on a violent belief system that touts death to anyone who is not a follower of the same ideology. They do not believe that “God is Love” nor any other truth that comes from Christianity. This is where Christianity differs, as Christ said, “They shall know you because of your love for one another.” This is the faith the U.S. was founded on and the only way we will ever be a truly great nation. Caring for another, no matter what the person’s background, is a mark of someone who empties him/herself of self and cares more for the other person. This is what Christ taught and will continue to be our mark. Sure, there are non-Christians who are giving, and they’ve been taught that from a young age. I take nothing away from them for that is Godly behavior. I’m just pointing out the reason why ISIS will never be as we are, and that’s due to our Judeo/Christian foundation.
    Aloha,
    Kiki
