I watched yet another special on Titanic today and realized I haven't written about my obsession with the ship. I have read everything there is on the ship, seen every film or documentary about it, and even did a senior paper in college on it. Ok, I'm a little obsessed.
Most of you know the tragedy of Titanic (if you don't, you were probably living in a cave the past 100 years lol). I think the reason I am so interested in the ship is because of the lack of common sense involved. I can't believe the Captain sent lifeboats that weren't full off the side of the ship. I can't believe there weren't enough lifeboats for everyone because there wasn't a regulation. I can't believe 1st class were considered more important and got to live over 3rd class passengers. I can't believe Captain Smith was in such a hurry to finish his final voyage that he disregarded the safety of his passengers and crew.
Such a sad, unnecessary tragedy. Here are some photos of the ship. I'm so sorry I am behind in my comments. I'm working on getting back on track friends!
