Washington Roebling had not only inherited a love for engineering from
his father, he also inherited his dad's creativity. He developed a code for
communication by using his finger to tap the arm of his wife, who
lovingly stood by his hospital bed.

For 13 years he instructed her as to what to tell the engineers so they
could complete the bridge.

So the next time you walk across the Brooklyn Bridge or see it in a
picture, do not think simply about the engineering wonder that it is.

Instead, think about the tremendous monument it represents for
overcoming adversity.
