Amish Community Remembers Schoolhouse Tragedy

It was one year ago Oct. 2, that an Amish community in Pennsylvania suffered an unthinkable tragedy.

Amish families have been following custom, keeping to their homes to privately mark the anniversary of last year's massacre of five girls at a schoolhouse.

On Oct. 1, they shared a meal, sang hymns and prayed in remembrance of the shooting victims.

The schoolhouse where milk truck driver Charlie Roberts carried out the siege has since been torn down and the land has been turned into an overgrown pasture.

Five other students were wounded in the attack.

Four of them have returned to class, while a fifth is confined to a wheelchair and is fed by a tube.
