Ten Year Anniversary, Part II

Today I  continue providing links to blog posts I wrote in previous years. You can click on the photos to enlarge them in all of the older posts.

In 2012, the PBS documentary, “The Amish” premiered on American Experience. I wrote about the symbolism I found in the film.

I rediscovered a series of posts I wrote in 2012 that I call my “Snapshot” series. Below are links to several of those. The series starts on January 29, 2012 and chronicles my school days when I was the only Amish child in my class at the Claridon Public school.
