Titanic's victim pocket watch: it stopped a few minutes after the sinking.

"Nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!
E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
still all my song shall be,
nearer, my God to thee
nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down,
darkness be over me, my rest a stone;
yet in my dreams I'd be
nearer, my God to thee 
 nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!"

Per tutti quelli che, come me, non possono non pensare alla gelida notte stellata in cui tutto accadde, in cui tutto finì...


For all those who, like me, can not but think of the cold starry night in which all happened, where it all ended...

  1. It is good to remember them. What a nightmare it must have been.

    Un bacio

  3. it was a terrible tragedy, what those poor people had to suffer through.

  4. Ci sono state tante terribili tragedie sulla Terra....nessuna si dovrebbe dimenticare, ma son davvero tante che è un po' difficile commemorarle tutte. Per me è l'11 Settembre ad avermi segnato particolarmente! Come mai tu sei così colpita da questo naufragio tanto da commemorarlo ogni anno?

  5. Hello Flora
    That hymn is such an appropriate one in reference to the victims of the Titanic, both those who survived as
    well as those who perished. To be out in the middle of the deep dark ocean with no other hope of rescue except God; .... surely it was a life changing experience.

  6. Impossibile dimenticare e triste vedere che queste tragedie continuano ad accadere.
