In the beautiful blue water I grab the rope and swim to the end of it. Then, the boat starts to move so I pull myself up. Now, I was standing on the Wakeboard gliding across the water. Then suddenly there were waves right in front of us, and we were headed straight for them and I said to myself, “ oh crap”. I still was standing when the waves crashed into my board, but the last wave turned my board sideways and my face hit the water very hard and my face felt like it was split apart, and my family said it looked like
William was walking into his house when he heard a voice say, “How did you survive the Titanic?” He looked behind him and he saw his grandson James standing there waiting for an answer. He was visiting over the summer because his parents were going on a vacation to Hawaii. William replied “ It’s been too long for me to remember.” James then said, “ Mommy said that you would tell us stories about it.” Oh, sorry James but sadly I can’t remember it that well.” But William secretly remembered it like it was yesterday. When William got in bed that night, all the memories came in all at once. One second He was an 83 year old man the next minute he was an 11 year old boy sleeping in a bed in the Titanic.
Most people thought that the Titanic was unsinkable, but they couldn’t have been any further from the truth. The Titanic’s maiden voyage in the early 1900s was cut short due to a collision with an iceberg. The Titanic was a tragic event that helped change sailing for years to come because of the massive casualties and the sinking of an unsinkable ship.
My favorite history experience has to do with the movie called “The Titanic.” Not just the movie but the actual event happening. I wish I could have been there and survived the experience to be able to tell the amazing, life changing story. The movie and the actual sinking of the ship affected me in many ways. I think it also affected the way we make our boats today. When I seen this movie and realized not only how much the world has changed since the titanic happened, but the way we think and how we build things differently.
The waves were immense, so we were all told not to go too far out. As my family started to get out of the water, after swimming for awhile. I decided to stay in the water and swim for a little bit longer. I was swimming more remote out to the deep sea. Suddenly I felt my foot start to sink underneath something grainy and soggy. Struggling to pull my foot back my other foot started to go under. I was panicked now, not know what was happening was the most appalling part the whole time. I finally figured out what was happening, I was sinking in some deep sand. As I was yelling for help frantically, I suddenly realized no one could hear me, I was on my own. I pulled and pulled until I felt my foot be released from the sand. I swam as fast as I could, when I finally got back to the shore, I looked at my family and said let's go back
James Cameron directed and co-produced Titanic in 1997. It is one of the epic tragical-romantic films of all time. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jack Dawson (hero) and Kate Winslet plays Rose DeWitt Bukater (heroine). Titanic tells the evergreen love story of Rose and Jack. Rose is a first class passenger, but her family is going through financial crises which her mother Ruth is trying to resolve and retain their weakening high-class status through her marriage with Cal Hockley, her fiancé. Agitated over this marriage she attempts suicide by jumping off the stern of the ship. Jack, a poor painter, discourages her from suicide and saves her life. This is a pivotal scene where an epic romance begins. The acting, setting, and lighting play
At the end of one century productive in rulemaking and novel technologies, the rate and severity of marine accidents did not meet the shipping expectations.
The sinking of the Titanic has become one of the most well-known disasters in history, because of the terrible loss of life and the demise of what everyone believed was an "unsinkable" ship. As is evident from reading this report the use of substandard rivets was the main cause of the failure of the Titanic. By substandard we mean that the type of rivets used was incorrect as well as the location of these rivets.
Officers began waking up the passengers, something wasn’t right, “Wake up!!, the captain wants you above the deck, this isn’t a drill!!” yelled an officer. The crew began giving us life jackets, I rushed outside to see what happen. They were uncovering the lifeboats, everything was in a chaotic distress, I couldn’t find my aunt, I had to find her. A man put me in a lifeboat, struggling to get out, I ran as fast as I could back on the ship, the front was underwater, smoke stacks started to fall. Titanic started to rise I ran to the back, I looked lost confused, I grabbed on to the wet rusty railing, men shouted women and children first. You could hear the despite cries of the dead and the dying, the breaking bodied of falling people, the glooming rockets used to find us. By the time a ship came to us, titanic won’t be the new gleaming, ship of dreams, but the old rust wreck of nightmares. People climbed till the couldn’t , the ship steeply rose then broke in two a small fires claimed the wreck. She was gone, we were alone, a boat didn’t come for me till an hour, and a rescue ship didn’t come till 2 hours. I looked back every day why I survived, no one recognized me, I never found my aunt.
The stories are all different in a way but still led up to their survival on the Famous Titanic. One of the survivors of the Titanic is Eva Hart, in 1912 Eva was only 7 years old when she arrived on the Titanic with her family. Being only 7 you can image how petrified she was to see what and live to see what had happen to the boat she was on. When the Titanic struck the iceberg Eva’s father had gotten Eva and her mother on the lifeboat without her father, which that day the last to see her father. Eva and her mother had returned to England with frightful memory and nightmares of foundering. Eva was just 7 when she almost lost her life to the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Still being a child she lost her father to the Titanic. Until Eva death on April 14, 1996 is was and is still one of the most outspoken survivor of the Titanic, censure the White Star Line for inadequate the supplies of the lifeboats and the materials all passengers need to get off the scandalous Titanic ship. Eva was only 1 of the 700 survivors of the Titanic, her stories will be remembered through all the generations to come.
Many people died in the Titanic all because of arrogance; one which was Mr. Johan Henrik Johannesson Kvillner. The Titanic was thought to be,”unsinkable” to the public. People that were on the ship ranged from maids to ship workers to millionaires. At that time the class system put them where they were on the ship. Upper class had the upper levels of the ship, middle class had the middle rooms and floors of the ship, and lower class had the lowest floors on the ship.
On April 15, 1912 at approximately 2:20am, the RMS Titanic sank into the ocean after crashing into a towering iceberg, 640km south of Newfoundland, Canada. More than 1500 people have died, tearing apart relationships and families. The whereabouts of the ship is still unknown and many fear the worst. The captain and crew has been blamed for this incident and is now facing public scrutiny.
CAT: Why did so many people lose their lives on the Titanic? The “unsinkable” RMS Titanic is perhaps the most famous ships ever to have sailed, and disastrously sink, carrying a hefty 2,224 passengers: 325 first class, 285 second class, 706 third class and 908 crew, of which over half died. At the time, it was a colossal achievement: the largest man-made object on Earth, a ship so new the paint was still wet in some spots. Thousands flocked to wave goodbye to the unknowingly flawed “Ship of Dreams” captained by Captain Smith the “Millionaire’s Captain” when it embarked on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, 2nd April 1912, carrying some of the wealthiest people in the world.
Someone walked up to me and told me and told me multiple water compartments are full of water, so we will sink sooner. I could barely hear the rest of our conversation because of the frightened passengers of the ship, adults were yelling and children were crying. People were trying to bring out the boats to secure them for us to get in, but only a few could
One October morning in 1965, my dad, my brother and his three friends set out on a fishing trip. They reached their destination, known for the best fishing; they dropped anchor. The day proved fruitful; they caught lots of fish until it was time to return home. When they turned the key to the engine, it would not start. They also discovered, to their dismay that the anchor failed to catch allowing them to drift away from Bermuda all day. My mother became anxious when they did not return at the expected time. An hour later, inquiries at the dock confirmed they were still at sea. As it neared nightfall, she contacted the police who called the U.S. Naval Coastguard Search and Rescue. A plane dispatched combed the area until darkness set in; they suspended the search for that night until the next morning when it would resume. My mother called several church members asking for prayer for their safe return. Ironically the night before, she had watched the movie, "The Titanic." She sat up all night praying. At the crack
