Impact of the Sinking

I was just curious about the impact of Titanic's sinking, did it have an impact in that generation much like 9/11 has for ours?

It's really difficult to gage emotions and tragedy from 100 years in the future. Other than changes in maritime laws and period newspaper headlines I can't really judge what the impact was on society at the time. Any input would be much appreciated.

9/11 resonates a lot more I feel because it was seen as an attack on all American life. Titanic, although it would have been shocking, wouldn’t have had quite the impact 9/11 did.
