On April 14,1912 a great ship called the Titanic sank on its
maiden voyage. That night there were many warnings of icebergs from
other ships. There seems to be a conflict on whether or not the
warnings reached the bridge. We may never know the answer to this
question. The greatest tragedy of all may be that there were not
enough lifeboats for everyone on board. According to Walter Lord,
author of The Night Lives On,
showed first 75 words of 1598 total
showed last 75 words of 1598 total
in Massachusetts. With her
death, many of the unanswered questions of the Titanic may have also
died. Hopefully, a tragedy like this will never have to happen again.
As stated before, ships are now expected to have enough lifeboats for
everyone on board. Ships also route their lanes farther to the south
during iceberg season. Hopefully, in some small, way this will make a
difference if such an accident at sea should ever occur again.
