I am outraged and horrified at the news from Germany. It is a crime against all human kind. My son moved into the community over 20 years ago. There he met the girl he fell in love with and married and had 3 children with the 4th on the way.
My husband and I along with his grandparents and friends have visited them in all the 10 communities he has lived in.
I have always told my family and friends that their lifestyle should be emulated by all of us.
If everyone on the earth lived with their values and philosophies, this world would be a better place. They live by the golden rule that you should treat everyone as you wish to be treated.
We have had many interactions with many people of the community. Everyone is honest, trustworthy, kind, and generous. Their beliefs are to make this a better world to live in for all of us. We have never seen a harsh word pass their lips on any occasion, nor any harsh deed. On the contrary, they believe everyone should be treated with kindness and respect.
In all of our visits to the various communities, and with all of the members who we have had contact with, everyone is above reproach and appreciative. My husband, who was a developer and contractor, hired them to do several complete renovations. He always said that they were the best contractors he ever had. Many of them stayed as guests in our home. They are the most wonderful people anyone could ever hope to meet.
My 3 grandchildren are so smart and respectful to me and others.
All the children we met and have gotten to know over the years have been the epitome of well-mannered, courteous, and well educated children any one could imagine. They do not deserve this kind of treatment.
I am horrified at the treatment they are receiving and hope this is resolved as soon as possible for the sake of the families.
