Yesterday, the Bay-Waveland Bridge opened, reuniting the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I can’t even begin to describe the significance of this. I would say, "imagine if the 520 or I-90 bridge went out one day," but it doesn’t really translate well. It’s closer to "remember when the power came back after the wind storm," and life was like it is supposed to be. that’s what the significance of this bridge is… life one step close to what it is supposed to be, although there are still many, many more steps to go.
