Making the case for walking across the bridge

July 20, 2013

I balanced precariously on the edge of the pavement trying not to be paralyzed with fear.
After all, if my 7-year-old daughter could do it, surely I could.
My wife could do it without a problem and even my 3-year-old wanted to give it a try.
So why was I afraid?
After all, it’s just a bridge. All day long people walk back and forth over it without difficulty. For me, however, it was not quite so easy.
We were visiting Chattanooga, Tennessee, where we had lived for several years.
