Yesterday, we watched the movie "Titanic." Dog Dad was quiet last night. This morning he had that wistful long ago look in his eyes during our walk. When we got home, he brewed some Kona Coffee. When the coffee was ready, he cut up some cheese. Then he raised his cup and said " They gave their lives so others could live; may we always remember their sacrifice. To those brave men and dogs." He drank some coffee and gave us the cheese.
link to the Washington Post article, that caused Dad to remember this day and to visit the monument when he lived in D.C. Those of you that have followed us for awhile, will remember this link to our post about it in 2008.
Dog Dad remembers the Titanic's story. The Titanic hit an iceberg at 11:40 PM on 14 April, next the first passengers were guided to the life boats at 12:15 AM on 15 April. At 2:20 AM the Titanic finally began to sink. In the end 1517 people and six dogs die in the disaster. Many lessons were learned and the world made safer, but we should never forget the sacrifice they made that day one hundred years ago today.
