This show has really opened my eyes to the truth about the Amish. People mock them, stereotype them, and treat them as if they are weird. They have their beliefs and we have ours.
Mose seems to genuinely care about the ex-Amish that he helps. His sadness when Cephis lost his life was heart-breaking to watch. His wife is supportive and seems to be very involved with helping her husband and supporting him. I can see that she loves him very much.
It must have been difficult for Mose to leave his family behind and know that they now shun him.
All I could ask is that Mose try to encourage more responsibility into these kids that leave. He should encourage them to drive safely and wear seat belts. He should remind them that this world is different than where they came from.
Although I understand what the Amish believe now, I do not understand why. Nonetheless, I choose not to judge them.
These kids are legally adults and they made a very difficult decision, knowing they will be shunned by their families back home.
I wish more people would try to understand one another. I would not mind seeing shows like this about regular religions, such as Christianity or Catholosism. These are also misunderstood.
I hope for more future episodes of this very soon. And I hope that people will watch it and learn to understand and respect the Amish.
The show is great for the entire family. Everyone can learn from it.
