Titanic: 100 Years Ago Today...

"It's been 84 years, and I can still smell the fresh paint. The china had never been used. The sheets had never been slept in. Titanic was called the Ship of Dreams, and it was. It really was ..." 

Today marks the 100th Anniversary of the voyage of the RMS Titanic. To say the world's a little obsessed would be an understatement. After all, the award-winning film — originally released in 1997 — has been re-released in 3D so that we may all experience it again. Since I am just as interested in the ship's history, the time period during which it sailed and the film as anybody else, I wanted to pay a mini tribute here on my blog. Happy Tuesday!

"Fifteen-hundred people went into the sea, when Titanic sank from under us. There were twenty boats floating nearby... and only one came back. One. Six were saved from the water, myself included. Six... out of fifteen-hundred. Afterward, the seven-hundred people in the boats had nothing to do but wait... wait to die... wait to live... wait for an absolution... that would never come."
