I think the memorial is too much!! The meeting house looks similar to the one room Amish schoolhouse in Nickel Mines Pennsylvania where many children were murdered.. I think the site looks like a dump. I am embarassed to live next to it. To the people who frequent the site: GET OVER IT!!! They died here,they're not buried here!!Go to the cemetery and reflect!!!! Bulldoze the site and build something else in it's place. The Amish leveled the site and planted grass. They want to put it behind them. Why can't we?
