PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - An Amish community that lost five girls in a Pennsylvania schoolhouse shooting massacre last year has donated money to the widow of the gunman, the community said on Wednesday.

The Nickel Mines Accountability Committee, which was set up to handle more than $4.3 million in donations from around the world after the shootings, said it had given an unspecified "contribution" to Marie Roberts, a mother of three.

WOW!
I'm atheist. But I have to admit this story left me speechless. (in a good way)

Very nice of them. She and her children are probably the worst victims of this tragedy.

So commendable. I do wonder if the gesture helps alleviate the pain. Having never been in that situation, I have no idea if it does or does not.

I made a contribution to this fund. I am OK with the decision.
