Half the mourners at gunman's funeral were Amish

Now I'm willing to bet that they were there more to support the family than to honour the gunman, but still.
"It's the love, the forgiveness, the heartfelt forgiveness they have toward the family. I broke down and cried seeing it displayed," said Bruce Porter, a fire department chaplain from Morrison, Colo., who had come to Pennsylvania to offer what help he could and attended the burial. He said Marie Roberts was also touched.

"She was absolutely deeply moved, by just the love shown," Porter said.

It is hard not to be touched by that.
