Red Cross Post: What the Titanic Taught Me
For the last 25 years the story surrounding the tragic sinking of a supposedly unsinkable ship has fascinated me. I find the Titanic captivating, perhaps because while the ship’s catastrophic end actually played out in real life – 100 years ago this Sunday, to be exact – the entire saga seems much more like fiction written for the big screen.
Yes, I love James Cameron's blockbuster movie, but I also love documentaries; Dateline, 20/20, and 60 Minutes specials; fiction novels; nonfiction books; journal articles; and the Magic Tree House chapter book for children about the Titanic.
And as it turns out, I also love writing about the Titanic, which I did for the Red Cross this week. Click here to read about what the Titanic taught me about being prepared!
