~Ship of Dreams~
"The Titanic"







    On the night of April 14-15, 1912 the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank in the icy waters of the North Atlantic. In 1985, a scientific expedition located the wreck depth of about 13,000 feet, approximately 470 miles off the coast of Halifax. The British liner claimed the lives of 1,523 passengers. Prior to that fateful night, it had been dubbed "unsinkable."



    The British liner was on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. The largest and most luxurious ship built up to that time, she was 879 feet (268 m) long and 95 feet (29 m) in the beam. Boasting nine decks, the ship was as tall as an eleven-story building.
        Although there were four funnels, only the front three were used – the fourth was for decorative purposes only. Each funnel was large enough to drive two trains through it. Nicknamed "The Millionaire Special" the Titanic was the first ocean liner to have a swimming pool, Turkish bath, squash court and a fully equipped modern gym. It had everything except an adequate number of lifeboats. The ship with 16 compartments said to be watertight because the bulkheads extended well above the waterline.
The ship that would never sink traveled with a mere 20 lifeboats on board.








    "Iceberg Right Ahead"


        There were a total of seven iceberg warning messages wired to the Titanic, Still, the captain did not order the ship to slow down.
    No more than 37 seconds elapsed between the time the shiphands spotted the iceberg, and the moment of impact. The time was 11:40p.m.
        Several passengers failed to even feel the collision. For the longest time, it was believed the Titanic ripped apart. In fact, the iceberg damaged only 12 square ft (1.12m2) of the ship’s total area. The Titanic’s demise proved to be the 7 million liters of water per second pouring from six narrow gaps located on the right side of the ship’s bow. By midnight, five compartments were flooded.
    The Titanic’s fate was sealed. At 2:18 am, she submerged into the murky water and sank; her stern lifted sky ward sending the ship whirling. The double hull, no longer able to withstand the enormous pressure, caused the ship to rupture between the second and third funnels. There were only 705 survivors. The sinking of the Titanic stands to this day as the biggest maritime disaster in history.

~My Heart Will Go On~
(Love theme from "TITANIC")

Every night in my dreams I see you, I feel you
This is how I know you go on
Far across the distance and spaces between us
You’ve come to show you go on

Near far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more, you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time and last for a lifetime
And never let go until we’re gone
Love was when I loved you, one true time I hold to
In my life we’ll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more, you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

You’re here, there’s nothing I fear
And I know that my heart will go on
We’ll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on
