One Light Still Shines

Many will not forget the morning in October of 2006, when 32 year-old Charlie Roberts walked into an Amish schoolhouse in Pennsylvania, killed five girls, injuring 5 others, then turned the gun on himself.  This is the story of Marie Monville, the then-wife of Charlie Roberts.  Monville talks about the tragedy and how she coped with the horror of having your husband, the father of your children, perform such an unbelievable act. This is a remarkable love story; love bestowed by the Amish, by Christians, and most importantly, by God.
