As a child, I remember that one of my family's
favorite books was Walter Lord's A Night to Remember.
It held a place of honor in our bookcase, right next to Gone
With the Wind. I was too young to read the book then...but sometime
in elementary school I saw the movie based on Lord's book. It has stayed with me
Many tragedies have happened
throughout history, but somehow the sinking of the Titanic seems to touch more
people than most tragedies. The ship accommodated all classes of individuals and
carried many immigrants hoping for a better life in Canada or the United States.
The people had been assured that the ship was unsinkable, yet they had no
control over the vessel and or their circumstances. If the sinking had been
immediate and killed all, it might not have been so memorable. The worst parts
(as I imagine it) were the wait for the inevitable, the separation of families,
the test of bravery and acceptance of fate, and all of the lost dreams of both
rich and poor.
I have never written a book about the Titanic,
but I have written three
stories about it. The first two come from my
book, How to Travel Through Time. The third
is taken from the Internet and analyzed. I hope you enjoy them.
Story 1 (ESP and
the Titanic). This story looks at some specific premonitions, dreams and
visions regarding the tragedy.
Story 2 (Reincarnation and
the Titanic). A sad story about a man obsessed with the history of the
Story 3 (The
Mummy on the Titanic). An untrue story (finally straightened out) about
the unlucky mummy supposedly bound for New York the night the ship sank.
