NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Regarding Pat Patterson’s letter about the Amish.
I had to laugh at the question.
Costumes? Are they really that clueless?
First, Volant is a very nice town and I like to see the courage of areas to make their homes and town live again. They don’t need anyone in costume. Volant speaks for itself. Nice shops and people and great to visit.
Our Amish neighbors have enough to deal with without people actually thinking they are just for show.
They are kind, hard-working people who are just trying to live in this world today and do what they feel is best for their families.
They have their own beliefs which dictate how they live, as many of us do. They are just stricter and do not follow trends.
I myself believe different than many and also hear comments sometimes unkind because of my choice.
We would all be better off to try and imitate and be kinder and work harder and follow Bible truths.
