The Brooklyn Bridge behind the scence's story

The Brooklyn Bridge that spans the river tying Manhattan Island to Brooklyn is truly a miracle bridge. In 1863, John Roebling a creative engineer was inspired by an idea for this spectacular bridge. However, other bridge-building experts all around the world told him to forget it; it could not be done.

Roebling convinced a young up and coming engineer Washington, who was also his son , that the bridge could be built. he and his son developed the concepts of how it could be accomplished and how the obstacles could be overcomed. With unharnessed excitement and inspiration, they hired their crew and began to build their dream bridge.

After a few months under construction, a tragic accident on the site took the life of John Roebling and severely injured the son, Washington. Washington was injured so much that his brain suffer permanent damage and he was unable to talk or walk. Everyone felt that the project would have to be scrapped since they lost their caption Roeblings. They though Roeblings were the only ones who knew how the bridge could be built.

Even though Washington was unable to move or talk, his mind was as sharp as ever, and he still had a burning desire to complete the bridge. On the time laying on the hospital bed, An idea hit him and he developed a code for communication. All the ability to communicate now rely the move of one finger, so he touched the arm of his wife with that finger, tapping out the code to communicate to her what to tell the engineers who were noew building the bridge. For thirteen years, Washington tapped out his instructions with his finger until the spectacular Brooklyn Bridge was finally completed.

P/S Desire cannot be killed my friends. When you are beaten by life let remind your self what are your desire  and also how lucky you are when you still have more tool than Washington
