A Day to Remember

As it's now officially the 100th anniversary of Titanic's sinking, I thought I'd share a post I wrote five years ago about a Titanic exhibit at the Ontario Science Centre -- for anyone who might be interested. I also plan to watch six hours of specials on History Television, which might be something I regret. Surprisingly, I haven't had any nightmares about Titanic yet, despite the various programs I've watched. I, uh, have a fear of drowning: something that has made itself apparent in my dreams over the years. Ironically, it was my mom who ended up having nightmares about Titanic after watching one documentary about the engineers who stayed behind to man the boilers. She was down there with them and the water kept coming in. It was an image that haunted her even when she was awake. When she told me this last weekend, I stared at her in surprise and said, "But that's something that would happen to me." Suffice it to say, my mom stopped watching anything about Titanic after that experience.
