The Titanic, 100 years ago

I snapped this photo in a neat book store in Sidney last week.
I bought two of the books. One of them is about the grave sites in Halifax, NS. It would be very interesting to see them one day. I love grave yards. Of course, they are sad places, but peaceful and contemplative too. The Titanic story is one that grips our imaginations because it was so grand and mighty with many wealthy people on board, enjoying all the luxuries to be had in 1912, and yet there were only 20 life boats due to the arrogance of human nature in thinking that nothing could go wrong, because this was THE TITANIC, the newest and largest cruise ship built, so grand and so mighty.
Yet within 2 hours and 40 minutes she was lying at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.
I saw the 1997 movie of "The Titanic" but this year no one wished to go and see it with me in 3-D. I'm still undecided whether I should go see it alone. I love the first half of the movie, but don't think I can endure watching it sink for 90 minutes in 3-D!

Hi Loretta,
Hard to believe the Titanic sank 100 years ago. I saw many documentary about it last week. I am thinking about seeing the movie in 3-D.
