1879: Railroad Bridge Collapsed

The railroad bridge across the estuary of Scotland's Tay River was
one of the great engineering projects of the Victorian era.
Consisting of 85 spans and nearly two miles long, it was the longest
bridge in the world when it was completed in 1878. Just 19 months
after it opened, on the stormy night of December 28, 1879, with a
strong gale blowing down the estuary, the bridge collapsed into the
river. A train with six carriages plunged into the water, killing 75
and leaving no survivors. The engineer who had designed the bridge
became ill and died ten months later. This disaster remains the
British Isles' worst structural engineering failure.

» Pharaohs ruled Egypt from 3110 B.C. until 332 B.C., when
Egypt came under foreign rule.

» The right arm and torch of the Statue of Liberty crossed
the Atlantic Ocean three times. It first crossed for display
at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exposition and in New
York, where money was raised for the foundation and pedestal.
It was returned to Paris in 1882 to be reunited with the rest
of the statue, which was then shipped back to the United
States.

invaded Britain--he didn't beach them high enough because
he hadn't taken tides into account.

» Philadelphia was second only to London as the largest
English-speaking city in the world at the time of the War
of Independence.

» The San Francisco cable cars are the only mobile National

» President Andrew Johnson offered a reward of $100,000 for
the capture of Jefferson Davis on May 2, 1865. That was the
equivalent of $1,195,269 in 2007 dollars.

A passenger train is creeping along, slowly. Finally it creaks
to a halt. A passenger sees the conductor walking by outside.
"What's going on?" she yells out her window.
"Cow on the track!" replies the conductor.
Ten minutes later, the train resumes its slow pace. Within five
minutes, however, it stops once again. The same woman sees the
conductor walk by again. She leans out the window and yells, "What
happened? Did we catch up with that cow again?"

In the days of Mordecai and Queen Esther the people of Israel set
themselves to remember an eventful time in their history. Mordecai sent
letters throughout the provinces calling for the memorializing of the
month that was turned "from sorrow into gladness and from mourning into a
holiday" (Esther 9:22). Near and far, the call was sent to annually
remember the day the tables were turned and the Jews received relief from
their enemies. And so it was determined: "These days of Purim should
never cease to be celebrated by the Jews, nor should the memory of them
die out among their descendants" (Esther 9:28). These days were weighted
with enough hope to press upon them the need to remember forever.
Moreover, they saw the certain possibility that they might forget.

There are moments in our lives when we realize that we are beholding the
carving of a day into the great tree of history. On the night before my
wedding I scribbled anxiously in my journal, "It will never be this day
again, but the seventeenth of every August will never be the same either."
I knew from that day forward it would be difficult (and detrimental) to
forget that day on the calendar--it would carry the force of forgetting so
much more. For vastly different reasons, September 11 is similar.

Israel's history is wrought with commands to remember. God told the
Israelites that they would remember the night of Passover before the night
had even happened. "This day shall be for you a memorial day, and you
shall keep it as a feast to the LORD; throughout your generations, as a
statute forever" (Exodus 12:14). Moses and Aaron were told to instruct
the whole community of Israel to choose a lamb without defect and
slaughter it at twilight. They were then to take some of the blood and
put it on the doorposts of their houses. "The blood will be a sign," the
LORD declared. "And when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No
destructive plague will touch you when I strike the firstborns of Egypt"
(Exodus 12:13).

From that day onward, celebrating the Passover was nonnegotiable, and with
good reason. God had spared his people by the blood of a lamb. From that
day onward, the command was passed down from generation to generation:
"You shall remember this day as a statute forever" (Exodus 12:17). And so
they remembered the Passover each year.

But just as we recall more than the wedding itself on an anniversary, the
act of birth on a child's birthday, or the grave events of a tragic day in
history, the Israelites were remembering far more than the act of Israel's
exodus from Egypt; they were remembering God Himself--the faithful hand
that moved and moves among them, the mighty acts which indeed shout of
God's timely remembering of God's people. They were remembering God among
them.

Centuries later, the disciples sat around the table celebrating their
third Passover meal with Jesus, an observance they kept long before they
could walk. Everything perhaps looked ceremoniously familiar. The smell
of lamb filled the upper room; the unleavened bread was prepared and
waiting to be broken. Remembering again the acts of God in Egypt, the
blood on the doorposts, the lives spared and brought out of slavery, they
looked at their teacher as he lifted the bread from the table and gave
thanks to God. Then Jesus broke the bread, and gave it to them, saying
something entirely new: "This is my body given for you; do this in
remembrance of me" (Luke 22:19).

I have always wished that Luke would have described a little more of the
scene that followed. Did a hush immediate fall over the room? Were the
disciples once again confused at his words? Or did their years of
envisioning the blood-marked doorposts cry out at the Lamb without defect
before them?

They had spent their entire lives remembering the sovereignty of God in
the events of the Passover, and on this day, Jesus tells them that there
is yet more to see: In this Passover lamb, in this the broken bread is
the reflection of me. As you remember God in history, so remember me. For
on this day, God is engraving across all of time the promise of Passover:
"I still remember you."

From this day onward, the disciples celebrated Passover with a new call to
remember. Might we similarly be ready to remember, and wary to miss, all
that weights these days with hope. For to be sure, to forget what was
witnessed in the upper room on that Passover in history carries the force
of forgetting so much more.
