Amish Grace

Anyone see the movie/series last night on Lifetime?  It was about how a mother was dealing with the death of her daughter aften a man took several young girls lives in an Amish schoolhouse.  I was wondering how accurate these movies about the Amish are?  Also, the girls that were shot were taken by ambulance to a hospital.  Do the Amish have medical insurance?  What about life insurance?

No they usually do not have medical insurance. They usually pay in cash for Dr visits and such. In the cases where they would need surgeries or dental work, the often go to Mexico.

Uh I dont know about the amish lifestyle, But I do know that the incident that movie is based on is only like an hour from me.  It was horrible. They trusted that man, and he went in and did that. The girls, well some of them were in hershey medical center. I dont believe they have insurance though, But who knows, they might.

In living such a simple life how can they afford medical bills, such as the ones that would have come from the tragedy in the movie?  Also, if they go to Mexico how can they go all the way down from where many of them live in Pennsylvania?

On another note, I would have NEVER forgiven him either roseberry.

i dont know how true the Mexico thing is, but they have money, trust me LOL.....They dont blow money on the stuff that we do. They are content with a simple life. I know they tried to raise money for the shooting incident. I'm pretty sure they denied the help, or  they may have accepted, i dont remember. Sorry.
