Someone asked an Amish farmer what community meant to him.
He said that whenever he and his son are finished with spring plowing, they let their horses rest at the highest point on their farm, where they can see 13 other teams of horses working the neighboring fields.  "I know that if I get sick or debilitated or die, those 13 teams will be at work on my farm."
