Many people have never heard of rumspringa unless they grew up around Amish. It's very sad this young man lost his life...I am sure many of the other young men and women who are about the age for rumspringa take into account of what happened to one of their own. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Amish Community. This is a very sad time for both families. I grew up in Lakeview, and around many of the Amish farms...so my thoughts are definitely with all of them in their time of need.

Very sad and tragic for this 17 yr old boy to lose his life. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I don't know much about the Amish culture but I feel they are not exempt from the laws and should have known better to not drink and drive.

Yes, we need to put the Amish in zoos all across this country, so we can insure that they never go extinct. Maybe we'll make them the national bird; screw the bald eagle, it's ... it's bald. The Amish have Pretty long beards.
lets put you in the zoo

Well said Wendy, I also grew up and still live in Lakeview and am aquainted with many Amish families in the area. Many people do not realize that just the older order Amish participate in rumspringa, and is done just before they join the church. So, thoughts and prayers abound to the families and community.

What ever happened to our acceptance and love for diversity in this country? In many of these forums, the Amish are regarded as separate from the human race. We are all the same, make the same mistakes and share in some of the same glories. Lets not talk of them as if they are a different breed. Your house has different rules and traditions than mine. So what? Lets not judge. Lets just love. And justice belongs to all. A non-Amish

Amish are like anybody else they also make mistakes.The amish way of living is a lifestyle not a believe,if we are not born again and have the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal savoir we are going to be lost.The bible says through faith by grace we are saved and that applies to all humans not just certain churches. The Lord looks down on us as all one level so why do people hate each other instead of loving and sharing there hearts.Lets pray for each other i know what they are going through from a friend.God Bless you all.

I commended as through Faith by Grace we are save and if i am not wrong it says,Grace by Faith we are saved i am not sure in which scripture it is,but we know what the bible says is the truth so why not read the bible every day and live to the bible.
