I had waited 15 long years, to cross from Portland to Vancouver ...
 a seven mile bridge. 
I was afraid. 
I had no more tears. 
When I did cross, there was nothing there, but forgiveness...
after all those years.

What is keeping you, on your side of the river? 
Make the trek, by bike, plane, or on foot ...
cross the seven mile bridge...
 to meet on forgiveness' ridge.
