Como, Wyoming - May 2000
"To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked manís progress
is to feel the great heart throbs of humanity through the centuries;
and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving,
one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life."
Surely the building of the original transcontinental railroad
in the 1860s was one of those great deeds. When experiencing
locations such as this in Southern Wyoming where the area
has changed little since the line was constructed, itís easy to feel
the heartthrob and the heavenward striving to which Helen Keller referred.
