    This is a beautiful picture. I belong to small group in Breathitt Co who want to save our swinging bridges, but it is a tough job with people more interested in tearing them down than preserving them. These bridges are art objects that represent our heritage. Many people have plans to absorb appalachian people as a group and replace them with an immigrant population. The first thing to go are our cultural symbols, our gravesites, our famous court houses, and yes, our arty bridges. If you care about who you are, you should e-mail the governor and tell him to support Swing The Bridge Group of Breathitt County.

    There is a swinging bridge at the old Fannie Clark place at Pilgrim, Ky.
    I used to go with my mother and brothers to gather apples in the fall at her place. This bridge looks just like that one. It was a long one, that swung out farther with every step. Once, I laid down on the bridge and refused to look down. My mother ended up going on across without me. Of course, she waited on the other side. I look back now, and the bridge doesn’t look so scary. I think it is still there, It has been a long time since I have been back that way.
