Pictured above is the largest cross in the Western hemisphere. It stands 190 feet tall, along a lonely stretch of I-40, near Groom, Texas. It's made of industrial grade steel tubing, and it took 250 men eight months to build. Every day, thousands of cars drive by it. Ocassionally some of them stop. Why they stop, and what the man who built the cross thinks about it all.
