Amish School House Razed as Families Seek Solace

A quiet pasture will replace the sight of the Amish school house where a gunman killed five girls and injured five others.
Although the Amish construct buildings without the aid of modern technology, closure was expedited and curiosity seeking prevented, as heavy modern demolition technology razed the schoolhouse in less then thirty minutes on October 12, 2006.
The quaint school house had been boarded up since the October 2 shootings, posted with No Trespassing signs and wrapped with yellow crime scene tape.  Where the beauty of children's laughter once filled the air, all that remains now in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania is neatly raked upturned earth.
