After a son does the unthinkable, how can a mother go on?

On October 2, 2006, a gunman entered an Amish one-room schoolhouse, shooting ten girls, killing five, then finally taking his own life. This is his mother’s story. Not only did she lose her precious son through suicide, but she also lost her understanding of him as an honorable man. It was a trauma that no one should ever have to face.
 
But the biggest headlines came when her Amish neighbors did the unimaginable, reaching out to the family of the shooter with comfort and forgiveness. Today, Terri lives in harmony with the Amish and has built lasting relationships beyond what anyone could have thought possible. From the grace that the Amish showed Terri’s family from day one, to the visits and ongoing care Terri has given to the victims and their families, no one could have foreseen the love and friendship that have been forged from the fires of tragedy.

    " This is the retelling of the story of the Nickel Mines Amish Shooting by the mother of the shooter. The killer lived and worked among the Amish but premeditated a murder of several young girls in the Amish School. Even so, the residents of the Amish community, showed sincere compassion, love and forgiveness that can be a lesson to us all. I can't imagine writing from such a sorrowful place from the heart of a mother of a killer. "
