The British ship “Titanic” sank at 2:20 AM on April 15th 1912, having collided with the iceberg at 11:40 on April 14th. At 12.15 AM.
one of the S.O.S calls from the Titanic reached its sister ship, the Olympic. The calls for help were heard by many ships but the closest ship, the Carpathia, was 4 hours away from the sinking Titanic. Titanic sank 2 hours before the Carpathia arrived to rescue survivors. Some survivors died of hypothermia shortly after they were recovered. The Carpathia arrived at New York on the April 18, 1912. The Titanic’s first and only passenger voyage had lasted less than five days.
Reblog this in memory of the Titanic & every single angel who passed away that night.
The night before the burial of her husband 2nd Lt. James Cathey of the United States Marine Corps, killed in Iraq, Katherine Cathey refused to leave the casket, asking to sleep next to his body for the last time. The Marines made a bed for her, tucking in the sheets below the flag. Before she fell asleep, she opened her laptop computer and played songs that reminded her of him, and one of the Marines asked if she wanted them to continue standing watch as she slept. “I think it would be kind of nice if you kept doing it” she said. “I think that’s what he would have wanted”.
-Not sure what is more honorable: Being married to this faithful wife to the end or the Marine standing next to the casket watching over them both.
