50 years ago, engineers faced a challenge when trying to put the crucial keystone section into the Gateway Arch. As the Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month, “one leg of the steel structure was expanding in the sun—pushing it out of alignment. So city firefighters were called in to spray down the leg and cool off the hot steel. That allowed a derrick to wedge in the final piece perfectly after the massive legs were spread apart.” Like the Arch, St. Louis and the people here have faced large obstacles and challenges. We have struggled to find our alignment, but also like the Arch, we always find our place and soar above it all.
