I just wanted to remember..

This isn't a crafty post today. As you know if you read my blog very often I am a bit of a history addict.  I have to admit to having a hankering for Tudor and medieval history BUT, today is a very special historical day.

Today, 14th April 1912 the 'unsinkable' ship Titanic hit an iceberg at 11.40pm.

Officially it sank at 2.20am on the 15th April but I decided I wanted to remember the terrible disaster, of one hundred years ago, today when the tragedy began to unfold. 

It's very easy to think of this terrible sinking to the sound of Celine Dion singing and Kate Winslet and Leo DiCaprio in a romantic, exciting movie. But, over 1500 people men, women and children lost their lives one hundred years ago in awful, terrifying circumstances. Alot of them were never found, buried at sea or buried in mass graves with just a number assigned to them as they were, in those days, unable to identify who they were. Leaving loved ones always wondering what happened to them.

I hope that you don't mind me filling my craft blog with historical fact but I just wanted to take a moment to think of those people, their lives, their hopes and dreams and remember them.

Speak again soon (about crafting I promise)
