The Bridge on the River Kwai

One of the amazing experiences that I had in Thailand was to visit the Bridge on the River Kwai and travel on the railroad built by the POWs. It was humbling and very sobering to visit the museum dedicated to those who lost their lives building the Thailand-Burma railway. Here are some pictures and video of the journey.

Sister Miriam James:

I found your "bridge work" while working on my particular bridge building project.

If SOLT moves forward in a mission-by-mission review on video for the 50th Anniversary Jubilee, you might want to volunteer to help.

I see you have a gift for photo journalism, as related in your narrative of the Bridge on the River Kwai video. It's good sister...

Have you seen the movie with Sir Alec Guinness and William Holden? Although highly fictional it is a classic.

My blog at http://eucharist-emc2.blogspot.com might interest you.

I see Pope Benedict's main mission as a Bridgebuilder in Truth.

Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,

Mike Rizzio, SOLT
