  •   In 1883, a creative engineer named John Roebling was inspired by an idea to build a great bridge connecting New York with the Long Island。

      However, bridge building experts thought that this was an impossible project and told Roebling to forget it.

      But Roebling could not ignore the vision he had in his mind of this bridge.

      After much discussion and persuasion he managed to convince his son Washington, an engineer, that the bridge could be built.

      The father and son developed concepts of how it could be completed and how the difficulties could be overcome.

      After that, they began to build their dream bridge.

      The project started well, but when it was only a few months underway a tragic accident on the site took the life of John Roebling.

      Washington was also injured and left with a certain amount of brain damage, which made him unable to walk or talk.

      Everyone had a negative comment since the Roeblings were the only one who knew how to build the bridge.

      In spite of these difficulties, Washington was never discouraged and still had a burning desire to complete the bridge.

      It seemed that there was a message for him not to give up. Suddenly an idea hit him.

      All he could do was to move one finger and he decided to make the best use of it.

      By moving it, he slowly developed a code of communication with his wife.

      Then he used the same method of tapping her arm to tell the engineers what to do. The project was underway again.

      For 13 years Washington tapped out his instructions with his finger on his wife's arm, until the bridge was finally completed.

      Today the Brooklyn Bridge stands in all its glory to the victory of one man's determination not to be defeated by circumstances.

      Often when we face obstacles in our day-to-day life, our hurdles seem very small in comparison to what many others have to face.

      The Brooklyn Bridge shows us that dreams that seem impossible can be realized with determination and persistence, no matter what the odds are.

      看了布鲁克林大桥的建造故事,很感动也很感慨。罗伯林一家三口人的传奇故事,供后人称赞,“天堑变通途”,在他们信念的力量中实现。为此我多了解了一下这个传奇之家的故事。

      布鲁克林桥由老罗伯林设计建造,但刚开工3个月,老罗伯林就因受伤感染破伤风,不治去世。那年小罗伯林32岁,他继承父志继续施工,长期在水下作业,3年后因患潜水病全身瘫痪,从此坐在家里的窗台前,用望远镜指导每项工程。小罗伯林的妻子艾米莉,更是不同凡响,为了把丈夫的指令准确传达给工人,她自学高等数学、力学、桥梁学等课程,每天往返于工地和家中,担负起大桥工程的实际指挥重任。很多人怀疑怎么可以把一项这么重大的工程交给一个残疾人,妻子发动市民支持丈夫,在工业重大工程这个男性的领域,女性发表演说是第一次。

      “心有多大,舞台就有多大”,在这个随着老罗伯林去世,造桥计划就要夭折时,小罗伯林接过了父亲的接力棒,这是父亲用生命去践行的蓝图一定要成为现实。可是灾难再一次如约而至,这对很多人来说是灭顶之灾,可是罗伯林活生生地活成了神话,他是神话,他的妻子是神话的延续者。“女本柔弱,为妻则刚”,她是丈夫的护士,是丈夫的手臂,从一无所知蜕变成总工程师的助理。

      1882年,12年过去,大桥建成通车,当天有15万人次从桥面上走过,举行庆祝仪式,但小罗伯林夫妇没有露面。他的建造者华盛顿·罗布林也从来没有踏上这座两代人生命建造的大桥。

      雁过留痕,他们从不曾为了什么荣誉而战,他们只是勤勤恳恳地用一辈子,用几代人去完成一件心愿而已。虽然布鲁克林大桥上不曾留下他们的足迹,但是他们的精神却永远留在了大桥建造史上的丰碑,永远地载入史册。

      听到这个故事,你还会觉得你的那些你以为越不过的坎还是坎吗?如今我们也遭遇着冬天,我们也处在冰窖里,惶惶不得终日,是的,坚信信念的力量无国界。中国史册上又有多少人把不可能变成了可能,从东方红卫星到如今的长征五号,从中国第一辆火车到如今的复兴号,从中国的第一部手机到如今的5G网络……

      “今日听君歌一曲,暂凭杯酒长精神”,愿我们“千锤万凿出深山,烈火焚烧若等闲”,而有一种热烈,一种喷薄而上,一种斗志昂扬的力量,这,便是信念的力量。我们拥有着这股强大的力量一定会战胜疫情,迎来胜利的曙光!
