The Roebling Family

Year 1869, was a vital year in the life of Engineer John Roebling, it was in this year he came out with his idea to build a spectacular bridge to connect Long Island with New York. Since there was no other bridge of its magnitude at that point of time the experts rejected his idea saying that it was an impossible feat. Roebling’s Intuition kept telling him that his vision was right about the bridge. The only support he had for his idea was his son Washington Roebling, who at that time was an upcoming engineer. They together prepared a detailed plan and recruited the necessary team. Though they were well prepared for bottle necks, a tragic accident occurred at the site killing Roebling. This incident happened few months after the bridge building work had started. Normally anyone would have given up. But Washington wanted his father’s vision come true.

Fate was so cruel that Washington suffered brain damage and was injured to an extent where he became immobile. He could neither walk nor talk or even move. As usual the experts who claimed the bridge cannot be built started raising questions about the continuation of the project. But these did not deter Washington.

He depended entirely on his wife Emily Waren Roebling to communicate. He used his only moving finger to communicate to her. He developed a code to make her understand his communication. Initially everyone thought he was foolish. His instructions were interpreted by his wife and passed on to the engineers. She spent the next 11 years assisting Washington Roebling for bridge’s construction.

Finally, the bridge was completed and inaugurated on 24th May 1883, the day on which Washington Roebling was on his death-bed.

Roeblings had not just made a bridge that looked incredibly strong; it also turned out to be just as strong in reality. Brooklyn Bridge stands as a spectacular land mark and is standing tall with an Inspirational True Life Story behind it for people who face obstacles in their life.
