04/15/1912, 2AM, North Atlantic.
100 years ago, the RMS Titanic set sail carrying 2,223 people.
And exactly 100 years ago today, Titanic sank at the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean causing the death of 1,514 souls after colliding with an iceberg a few hours earlier.
Today we remember all those who went down with the ship.
RIP Titanic and its victims.
I live on the coastline near where this happened. Freezing atlantic aside, if the weather this day 100 years ago was anything similar to how if feels today … the thought of those survivors scattered, soaking wet, all over the place. It’s bloody freezing. RIP to all those involved.
Last Titanic post, I promise. I’ve just always been pretty passionate about it (I did some projects/speeches on it in middle school, ect.) <3
