Song for Friday...still in our thoughts

 The Titanic leaving Belfast, Northern Ireland
where she was built.

On Sunday it will be the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
On the east coast of Canada in Halifax, this is near to the cities heart.
Many helped in the rescue and recovery during the aftermath
and many are buried in the local cemetery.
82 Canadians died on this early morning in history.
Many immigrants on their way to start a new life also perished.
Who knows what impact any of those 1,500 who perished would have had on our world?
So today, a tribute to this majestic ship and all her passengers and crew.
Reportedly this was the last song the Orchestra played on board.
Have a great weekend all.
