This concludes a story about the building of the Brooklyn
Bridge. To read from the beginning, click here.

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.
