After the tornado...Amish lend a helping hand:

THE barriers of different beliefs broke down May 31 when a tornado struck the hamlet of Atlantic, in northwestern Pennsylvania. Several hundred Amish from Ohio and Pennsylvania streamed in by buggy or bus to help Amish and non-Amish alike. Half a dozen people had been killed and some six dozen buildings destroyed. To the Amish, generosity comes natural when people are in need.
