Well it is here, it has been 89 years since Titanic set sail. I have been thinking about it all day looking at the clock, remembering what was going on lol. I cannot believe it has been 89 years, I have been trying to make a 365 day calender of Titanic events, I like to see what happened that deals with the Titanic everyday. Titanic is weighing heavily on my mind now and I have sat down looking at all my books. Is any one doing anything special this week dealing with Titanic?? I was just wondering what others do. Well if this made sense to anyone please respond.
Thanks,
Trent

Well, what I am doing next year will be ambitious. The chronology will be heavily updated, and each post will be fairly long, especially those during the voyage, and I may extend it to the 17th.

Hello,

I take a "time out" to remember the sailing day, as well as all the other days of the Titanic. Today, at around noon, I was laying out of lunch at my highschool, and took a moment to just close my eyes and imagine the enormous, new liner leaving Southampton. It seems I can picture this stuff better on the anniversaries of it; I don't know why.

I thought about how those people, from the titled in first-class, the ordinary in second, and the emmigrants in third had no clue as to what they would face in the next few days. I also pictured Captain Smith standing proudly on the bridge of the Titanic, on his last crossing. Little did they know that many of them would never come back.

Your not alone, yesterday and actually today too the Titanic has crossed my mind more then once as it does every April. In someways it doesn't seem all that long ago at this time of year, hard to believe it's been 89

Might be Titanic week, but it is also Holy Week, so I shall not be posting on the 13th (Good Friday) and not posting on the 15th (Easter Sunday) until after 4:00 PM.

Wow. And I thought I was the only weird one to think about the Titanic during Titanic week.!

I think I'll watch 'A Night to Remember', flip through a few books, but for a "real" experience I can walk two blocks to the home of a survivor from 1st Class, along the same streets she strolled, in a neighborhood that hasn't changed much since 1912. And just imagine, on the 19th or 20th of April, what it must have been like to debark a carriage or auto, after what must have been a tiring trip from New York on the train, and finally reach home again while so many perished on the sea.
