I'm sure most of you know what this date means.
For those who do not,
100 years ago the Titanic sank in the Atlantic Ocean.
Bob and I purchased this first edition book
on a recent pick we went on.
When I first picked up the book,
chills went all over me,
because I knew this book was written the year the mighty ship sank.
It was the only authoritative book written
constructed from the real facts of those who survived.
I'm getting chills again just writing about this.
The picture on the left is the captain.

To the 1635 souls who were lost with the
ill-fated Titanic, and especially to those
heroic men, who instead of trying to
save themselves, stood aside that women
and children might have their chance; of
each of them let it be written, as it was
written of a Greater One---
"He Died that Others might Live"
I want to read this book, but I know
it will make me cry.
On another note,
one of our local museums
"The Henry Ford"
in Dearborn, Michigan
currently has the Titanic Exhibition
In this exhibit there is a replica of the grand staircase,
replicas of state rooms and actual artifacts taken from
It will be on exhibit from now until September.
Bob and I are planning on going one day soon.
Please take a moment to remember those who lost their lives
"on the unsinkable ship"
as the captain had stated
before sailing on that fateful cruise.
Blessings to all
