For as long as I could remember, I've been fascinated with the whole story of it. I think it started a few years after the big movie came out in 1997. Me and my friends were "in love" with Leonardo DiCaprio, and we watched the movie over and over (of course, with my parents skipping over several scenes and muting large portions because of the language).
I only intended on using a few pictures in this post, but there were so many beautiful ones that I went a little overboard (no pun intended).
And movies about the Titanic really make me think. I try to imagine what it would be like, standing there on the ship as it sank, fighting that panicky feeling because there's nothing you can do. Just standing there, waiting for death. If you were a Christian, you might feel some peace or comfort, but what if you weren't? Or trapped on the ship, not able to even have a chance to live (some of the crew were trapped, and some of the lower class passengers, even women and children, were hindered from getting to lifeboats).
Or maybe even worse yet, being on a lifeboat and floating away from your husband, or your brother, or your father, or possibly even your son. And watching the ship that they're on sink under the surface. Wondering why you lived while your loved one(s) died. I can't imagine what those people went through.
The romance between a young college boy and the daughter (not pictured) was one of my favorite parts...it was so sweet.
Warning: This video may contain slight spoilers...skip to 5:40 and watch to the end for one of my favorite parts. :) You can watch the whole movie on YouTube!
