Amish Grace-the movie reviewed

This movie is based on the real tragedy that occurred in Pennsylvania in '06 when a shooter killed 5 Amish schoolchildren. It is a very respectful Christian adaption that feels a bit like a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, showing how the community dealt with these senseless killings.

Its a very well done movie that makes you wonder if you could practice forgiveness if your own daughter was senselessly murdered. The Amish have to depend on faith to deal with this and some have a harder time of it than others.

Seeing this movie also gave me a fresh appreciation for Eckankar, which gives a fuller understanding of karma and reincarnation, that would make a significant difference is understanding how something like this could happen.

In any case, this is a worthwhile, very thought provoking movie, and needless to say, a bit of a tear jerker. Recommended.
