    Amish on American Perspectives

    On public television right now (don't know if it's nationwide or just AETN) (Central time zone.)

    The Amish Kids

    So we spent a snowy Friday in a large Children's hopsital for my Ehlers-Danlos daughter, having a bunch of potential sub issues, and a heaping side order of respiratory problems ( diagnosis asthma) and hives ( diagnosis dust mite and dog allergy, as well as "chronic uticura") taken care of. In one of the offices we went to, there were 7 Amish kids, ranging in age from about 10 down to about 2, alone in the waiting room. Mom was in with the patient. At first, they formed a circle of sorts, sitting back to back in a row of chairs that were of that configuration, the two littler ones sort of orbiting close to them, but all of them eyeing the one ghetto-chic black woman, a white woman in pants, an asian woman, and my redneck-chic daughter and I. ( I was in mens jeans, as usual) The were afraid at first. The Ghetto fabulous woman starting talking to them, just going on and on with a story about one of her kids. Because her back was to us, we missed some of what she was saying, I would have loved to have heard more, but didn't want to be too obvious. The kids started to relax ever so slightly. Then the white woman and the asian woman ( all seated closer than us) also started talking to the older kids. They relaxed enough to let their two little sisters start running around the waiting room more. Then, my daughter's very loud ringtone of Katie Perry went off. She pulled out her zebra covered Iphone... and one of the older girls, who looked to be twins, cracked the widest smile. They all started craning their necks to see her Iphone. The two little ones forgotten, just started running all around. One ran to the door, and a woman caught her up in her arms - another men's jean wearing, short haired woman, and started telling her how cute she was. The one girl gingerly approached my daughter, who looked up, caught her eye, and returned the smile. The Amish girl lit up like a Christmas tree. Before we could start showing her Angry Birds, we got called back. After we were done, in another part of the hospital, we saw the family again. This time Mom was there, with the baby who must have been the patient. The other kids all clustered around mom and ignored us. But not Iphone girl. She took a few steps toward us and smiled widely, meeting our eyes. We did the same. I said to my daughter " That one will be leaving them in a few years". I wish I could have given her our address. I wish her well. Edited to add: My daughter wondered aloud, after we saw Iphone girl with her mother again, if it could be considered child abuse to be forced to grow up Amish.

    Amish and Autism

    A fundie friend posted this on Facebook. For the record, she does not vaccinate--never has--and she has an autistic child. So I don't know why she believes this. http://wvoutpost.com/2011/06/07/the-ami ... ible-link/ Le sigh.

    Amish Cape Dress

    On one of the threads someone wanted to know what a cape dress looked like. It is the middle of the night. I am wide awake. So I did a google search and found this. http://www.plainlydressed.com/cart/products.php?cat=23 This page has several examples of Amish/Mennonite style dresses. There is also a link on this page for head coverings...if you are up to it.. This website is maintained by a Seventh Day Adventist who is way far to the right of anything I ever encountered in Historic SDAism. While there was a push to keep sweet and wear dresses. We certainly were not pushed to dress like the old order Amish. I was expecting to find Mennonite Seamstresses...very surprising.
  5. I feel like watching something Amishy but I've seen most that I know of: -Trouble in Amish Paradise -Leaving Amish Paradise -The World's Squarest Teenagers -Amish Grace (Lifetime movie, not a doc). -And some nightline (or something like that) on Amish teens who have left. Do you know of any others?

    Amish on Break

    Did anyone catch this special on the National Geographic Channel? It was pretty interesting. It featured four Amish young adults on Rummspringa (sp?) in England. They stayed with 3 different families and got to experience a lot of different things. I was struck by a couple of things. First, I was really surprised that this access was allowed by their Amish elders. It must have been one of the more liberal sects. Secondly I was a bit saddened at how little they knew about the world around them. I realize that in their life they probably have no need to know about wordly things, but these kids didn't even know what the Bill of Rights was. Also very moving was how absolutely struck with fear the girls were when they were taken to a nightclub. You could tell that they felt like it was Satan's den. Now I myself don't really like nightclubs, but if you could have seen the looks of terror on these girls' faces. I'd talk about the ending, but some of you might want to see it on your own. I'd recommend it, it was pretty good.
