Why can't people understand that this is a very small community, we like it that way, and we want it to stay that way. The amish lead their own lives within the community. It's time to let this topic go, allow them their healing time, and keep public noses out of their private tragedies. Being a Bart resident, I truly can't believe the increase in tourist, wanting to stick their nose's in other's tragic events. And I especially find humor in the dumb one's that stop and take pictures of the wrong location, thinking it's where the school was. Just leave our community alone, please.

you know the media only wants to tell the stories of what happens in the news every day and we have to respect that. this tragedy was national and we have to keep that in mind. i know i was glued to my t.v. that day and thanx to the media i knew everything that happened. if we didnt have the media we would of never knew about 9-11 and we would not know what happens around the world on a daily basis. i live near this community where this happened and i also grew up in bart township, went to bart colerain elementary, and my landlord was amish. he is a relative of the sisters that died. i went to see him after this happened and he said he understood about what the media does. so every person that travels there and takes pictures only wants to see it in person. i know i went there just to see the school. i wanted to go cause my heart went out to them. i like amish people and i respect them. they are part of who i am cause i grew up with them. they are my friends and neighbors. thank you deirdre from chester county, cochranville
