With this in mind, when you walk around with body parts covered in paint, this is presenting a clear signal to everybody in the village.

I have enjoyed a twenty-four year career of public service. I can recall countless of lives that I touched as a Paramedic. Two instances that touched my life while helping people were, the patient experiencing a diabetic coma after a drop on blood sugar, and the mother with no prenatal care that waited until the last minute to give me the honor of delivering her child.

Amish weddings are traditionally held on Tuesdays and Thursdays in late fall, after the final autumn harvest. A couple's engagement is usually kept secret until just a few weeks before the wedding when their intentions are "published" in church.
