Mary Bell: Courtesy is Key when Sharing Roads with Amish
April 24, 2015
It has been my privilege in recent years to become friends with several members of the Amish community in the southeastern corner of our state. One afternoon earlier this month, I visited three Amish friends. At each home, I was told about a buggy accident that occurred in March, which resulted in the deaths of a young father and his 6-month-old daughter.
Each person told the story with deep, heartfelt sadness. Although the accident took place near Gilman, Wis., everyone reacted as if they were neighbors, reflecting a deep-rooted belonging to a larger community.
