How tall you are?

"John Henry stands tall, broad shoulders above the rest" (para. 1)

I thought this was really interesting because it could have a double meaning.  John Henry could have broad shoulders and stand tall above everyone, but it could and most likely means that he does a lot more and is more recognizable than everyone else.  He is bigger and better than the rest and has done a lot more than others.  He said that he could be better than a drill and tried his hardest to prove it resulting in death.  He died doing his work which was honored, especially what he did.  So John Henry is higher than everyone in his work and effort.
