THORNDIKE, MAINE -- 06/26/2017 -- Kenneth Copp of Thorndike loads hay on a wagon in his field. Copp, 57, spent decades living in old-order Mennonite and Amish communities in several states. He started questioning his religious beliefs and in 2012 left the Amish church. He was shunned by the Amish community and eventually lost his family. He says aspects of his new life are very hard, but he is happier and more at peace now.
