From the moment the devastating news reached New York, America has been utterly enthralled by the Titanic disaster. We savor mental images of the super rich clinging to debris, drowning because they grabbed jewels instead of a life vest, and we still can't help but wonder whether the iceberg was cosmic punishment for the arrogance of claiming an "unsinkable" ship. Even 100 years later, we want to know what else the wreck can teach us.
I prefer to remember the Alamo. I can't wait for the 3D remake.
The Titanic was the largest of ships and brag to be unsinkable of its time. Call it what it is, "Ego eccentric". It is only with heartfelt reflection, the engineers presently should build the best, safest ships possible now and the operators follow the best of guidance in policies. Be prudent, be vigilant, be true and honor those who lost.
Science sees no further than what it can sense, i.e. facts.
Religion sees beyond the senses, i.e. faith.
Open your mind and see!
It could save your life and those around you too.
The "unsinkable" part always puzzled me.
What if it was hit by torpedoes instead?
I doubt the engineers thought it was "unsinkable"
We *savor* mental images of the super rich clinging to debris and drowning because they grabbed jewels instead of a life vest? Savor? I know that's not how you meant it, but you should edit the article. Because that sounds really bad. ;-)
