Is He Crazy?
Salt & Light Volume II, Issue 33 by D. Scott Prindle

"For who has despised the day of small things?"
(Zachariah 4:10)

You Tell Me
For seven years, a forty year old Polish Foster child with $147 dollars to his name, began his day carrying 50-75 pounds of gear up the 741 steps he built on the side of a mountain.

Why? To drill another hole in the rock for the dynamite used to carve out a sculpture. Carve a 600 foot mountain... create a sculpture nearly ten times larger than Mt. Rushmore?

What vision! The key was getting started. Buying the air compressor, the bits, the drill... then getting to work. His job was as tedious as it sounds. One day he climbed those 741 steps nine times because the air compressor kept quitting.

On June 3, 1948 the first blast was made.

Today you can see the face of Crazy Horse carved out in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

It all started with the first hole hand drilled by Korczak Ziolkowski who had a vision to honor the Native Americans. Today Korzcak's work continues through the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation.

An ordinary person who attends to the daily details of life can make an extraordinary difference. It's the high calling of your daily work.

Crazy Horse or Crazy Korczak? You tell me.

Love Never Fails,
Scott & Laurie Prindle
