It’s incredible what humankind can accomplish when they come together. What is impossible to do alone is made possible when we come into harmony. We create a world of endless possibilities together and are powerful in creating change. It’s up to us to chose whether we use the power of team work and solidarity for good and bad.

For one amish community, a group of men, young and old, came together to accomplish a task that otherwise seemed impossible: lifting a metal barn from the ground up and moving it to a new location, Here’s how it went.

The current Amish community is made of descendants who left their homes in Europe when faced with prosecution for their religious beliefs. Today they live in tight-knit communities all over North America. In fact, there are about 40 Amish affiliations all around the United States.

The Amish community is completely self-reliant and lives minimally. They are cautious to embrace the technologies of the modern world. They prefer not to use electricity and big machines, and instead use their own manpower. That means that to build and relocate entire structures, they only have their are hands to do it.
