almost 100 years ago: Titanic! Oddly, I haven’t been hearing all that much about it, just one side note in a news story the other day. But it’s coming up in less than two months: 15 April. Here’s a few links:
Titanic 2012 presented by the port of Cobh, the last port of call.
Titanic Memorial Cruises although oddly none of them seem to be sailing in the area on the day of the wreck. . . .
Halifax has a web site and activities.
It’s almost become. . . .cliche to think about anymore, what with the soap-opera movie (now in 3D!), but it pays to stop a moment and remember that over 1,500 people lost their lives that night, entirely comparable at the time to our 9/11, albeit not due to hostile action. I’m hoping that won’t be lost in all the hoopla sure to surround the anniversary.
