A Time to Remember

April 15, 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the tragic accident that caused the great Titanic to sink. The film industry has done its part in creating a romantic fantasy about travelers aboard and showcasing the distinct difference between first, second and third class passengers. After a little research, I came across a chart that shows the percentages by class of survivors. Only 3 percent of first class women were lost compared to 54 percent in third class. Only 1 child in first class was lost but 52 children in third class didn't survive. Such a sad event and one of the most devastating disasters in history.

It's so sad! ABC is getting ready to start a series about the Titanic that will focus greatly on the separation of the classes. It's by the same people that do Downton Abbey. I hear that it's gotten bad ratings where it's already being viewed in Britain but it might be an interesting watch.

Oh I didn't know about the series on ABC! I'll still have to give it a try. The Titanic story is just so easy to get lost in
