時常在新聞片看到Amish(阿米什人/愛米希人)和他們的馬車, 服飾, 令人撲朔迷離, 究竟是什麼種族或教派? 他們令我聯想到電影"The Village", 一些與外界斷絕來往的部族.

直至星期一在美國賓夕法尼亞州(Pennsylvania)的Lancaster County發生的校園槍擊案, 令人更想多一點認識這個有別與一般人的族群.

根據Wikipedia, Amish一族不用汽車及電話, 不參軍, 不接受任何政府支助, 說的是一種德國方言, 祖先是瑞士人, 現在主要居住在美國的Pennsylvania(賓夕法尼亞州), Ohio(俄亥俄州), Indiana(印地安納州), Maryland(馬利蘭州), Kalona (Iowa) (艾奧亞州), 及加拿大的Ontario(安大略省).

更多有關Amish的一切, 包括他們的生活, 信仰, 及歷史, 可看以下網站:

The Amish and the Plain People of Lancaster County, PA

The Amish: their history, beliefs, practices, conflicts, etc.

after switched it, i can't see my blog (the screen is blank) if i link to my blog unless i go to "post" and then "view". i still don't know why. can you link to my blog?

the most friendly thing is that you don't need to wait for publishing, and it has "labels" function.

but honestly, i will suggest you to wait a while untill everything is completed as you have many stuff in your blog.
