My Mom always gave me a little bit of a hard time for my fascination of those things dark and grim. I can't say that I've ever grown out of it.From the Holocaust books and movies to the wreckage of the Titanic to the short moment in time when I wanted to work at a funeral home, things like this leave me in awe. I spent a huge portion of my senior project on The Holocaust, but an even bigger portion of Junior high on the Titanic.
I don't know that I would be as fascinated by the stories of the Titanic if she had made her voyage to New York unscathed. But then again, would any one else in the world care much either? Titanic would be in the history books as the "Unsinkable ship" without the (hehe) next to it.
I can't believe it's been 100 years. I figured there would be all sorts of documentaries and I've been eating them up!
And for the record? I was into Titanic way WAY before Kate and Leo jumped on board... though I thought the movie was decent... Any ways, here's to you Titanic. May you rest in peace.
