'Miracle Girls'

"We want to forgive him, but we have to not just do it one time. We have to do it again and again."

An anonymous Amish couple has spoken about the Nickel Mines shootings, and what's come after.

"I have to talk, get it out of my system. If not it would get the best of me ", said the Amish woman.

They spoke about the difficulty of forgiveness, and the inspiration they've drawn from the surviving girls.  Four of the five are back in school.

Maybe the ones who died had a purpose, they said.

"It took five little innocent girls to show the whole wide world there is a God."
