"The Amish Project" brings a story of great tragedy and greater humanity

On the morning of Oct. 2, 2006, an armed gunman went into a schoolhouse in a Pennsylvania Amish community and shot 10 young girls, killing five, before killing himself. That horror-filled day was soon followed by days filled with something else: immeasurable, unfathomable humanity and forgiveness. Director Leda Hoffmann hopes to bring this story back into the spotlight with the one-woman play "The Amish Project."
