Faces of a time
In this picture is grandfather, just one of many who helped build the Hoover Dam. He is the one that hides his fatigue, that has known easier times. There is however a greatness of spirit in his eyes. He has overcome his fear, the fear of not being able to take care of his family, and in this fear he has joined his spirit with so many others.
How do people overcome their fears but with the help of their friends? In work in war in waging a life of strife, there is a presence of patience among men and women. There is solitude in the most remarkable places and times. Amidst the building of the dam, these men may have been alone with their thoughts but had one another to see these thoughts through, to level, to balance, to befriend.
