Would You Say He Was Crazy?
Salt & Light Volume X, Issue 20 by D. Scott Prindle

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

You Tell Me
A forty year old Polish foster child with only $147 dollars to his name, built 741 steps on the side of a mountain.

He began his day carrying 50-75 pounds of gear up the wooden stairs to the top of the mountain.

Why? To drill another hole in the rock for the dynamite used to blast 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. His job was as tedious as it sounds. One day he climbed those 741 steps nine times because the air compressor kept quitting.

People called him crazy. They laughed. They made fun.

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 a decision by Korczak Ziolkowski to fulfill 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 a vision can make an extraordinary difference.

It's the high calling of your daily work.

Crazy Man or Crazy Horse? You tell me.
