This afternoon at 2 o’clock, Greenville celebrates the 10th anniversary of Liberty Bridge, which today’s Greenville News calls “our postcard,” noting, “This is where men on bended knee make their marriage proposals, where teens squeeze in tight with smiles full of braces to frame their selfies, where business recruiters close on multimillion-dollar deals.” (Read the full article here.)
True, the structure is more than just a bridge. It’s given our community a broader vision of itself. It brings people together in new and exciting ways. And, it’s a memory maker for many who live here and countless who don’t.
In fact, last weekend it brought smiles and cherished moments to some of those I love best.
Thanks, Liberty Bridge! And happy birthday!
