Alot was going on 100 yrs ago early this morning.....We both grew up knowing all about the Titanic.....I have learned so much about it through all of the years....and there is nothing anyone could have done for all of those that lost their lives....such a SENSELESS LOSS of life, simply because there were only a few lifeboats. I often seek out the individual stories that you hear about, like someone that gave up their ticket so another could be with their family in America, or how someone may have MISSED boarding the ill-fated luxury liner....and there are 100's of stories like this, that go unheard of that may be insignificant to others but I think of all of those things, events that affected 100's of people in itself....This whole event was bigger than most folks can actually see....or imagine.....like the one young lad that wasn't able to board with his close buddies, simply because he was building on the OLYMPIA, Titanic's Sister Ship that was built along side of the Titanic, simutanously...and his buddies worked on the Titanic and were getting rewarded by being allowed to cross over to America...something like that. All of these types of events are "Movies" in their own right......The Titanic affected not only just the passengers, but countless 1000's of other people throughout the world, relatives, friends and so on....They were saying the mere fact that she was at that time the WORLD's LARGEST Ocean liner and on her maiden voyage via Belfast, Ireland where she was built to SouthHampton, England then across to America.....placed such heavy significance back then, how folks marveled at such a massive construction...and then billed "UNSINKABLE" seemed destined to fail unbeknownst to most... Just like anything in life, ironically no one should ever assume that something is so superior that God himself couldn't take it......Everything in life has it's point of demise, but back then to take a "CHANCE" on the FIRST TIME LARGEST SHIP, with so few lifeboats, proved the ones owner making that decision made a grave mistake. But from reading yesterday, I did a lookup on precautions made since Titanic's Demise, many strict rules were made in the constructions of ocean liners and also most importantly the need for ample numbers of lifeboats would accompany all Ocean Vessels from there on and SAFETY being the most important factor. I myself would NEVER travel by this means knowing the shortage of lifeboats, seems like too big of a chance to take, and we all know that "CHANCE" sometimes looses.
There are countless hundreds of photos posted here and there online to view of the survivors and families and also of the deceased too, the crew and videos of the ACTUAL construction of the Titanic, and countless ACTUAL PHOTOS and MOVIE Clips of Actual passengers and all even back 100 yrs....it is amazing. It really makes this event COME ALIVE for the younger folk today to learn about. This was not an event that happened with "hear say" the photos and film clips all prove it really happened. Thank God for modern technology even back then in 1912.
GOD BLESS all of those whom lost their lives on the Titanic and all of those lives affected by this tragic event. May they all REST IN PEACE.....
Just felt compelled to dedicate some time to this 100 yr Anniversary of such a Tragic Event. Hope you don't mind.
Hugs KEN

~Connie Smith and I~

~I am a man, lover of music and I love to sing LADY Songs also, and most often as they are written, not always RE-Genderizing them to suit some listeners. I have too much respect for the most part for someone's music and try to go ahead and sing it as it is written, for man or for a woman. Many of you know that I LOVE the Late TAMMY WYNETTE....I do alot of her songs as she sung them, I do not try to make them GENDER CORRECT. For me a SONG is a SONG, you like it, then sing it as is, and don't worry what others might think....I hope all of you will understand this and learn to love and accept my view on this as well...we are all here for the SAME PURPOSE...the LOVE OF MUSIC and mostly just to HAVE FUN.....Thanks so much KEN
