Note: I am writing this blog in the perspective of the company, White Star Line, the makers of the ship, Titanic.
For those of you that do not know what this newsletter is going to be about, it is about what event happened on April 15th. The ship, called the Titanic, stuck an ice burg. They were able to avoid a head on collision but as the caption was turning, he hit the ice burg with the side of the boat. The boat was made to with stand blows of this proportion by having 4 out of the 8 bottom tanks be able to fill up with water. The only thing is, is that they hit the ice burg with such tremendous force that, not only did ithe 4 tanks fill up, so did the fifth, the sixth, and the seventh. The ship couldn't stay a float. Its sank killing thousands of people. The first thing that I would like to say that I give my deepest thoughts and regards for any families or loved ones that were related to or loved somebody that was lost in the tragic, accident that was, and till is affecting everybody today. The second thing that I would like to say is that we as a company, know that many of you blame us for the, the company, for what happened when that is note true. We took every pro cation that we could to keep the great beauty, Titanic, safe, and floating. There are just things that happen in life and those things aren't always good things or even relatively close to good things. We apologize once again for the lost loved ones and we are sending you, who ever you may be, and your family our deepest regards. There are things in this particular situation that were completely out of our control. Many of you know of the Titanic sister ship. Well the caption of that ship was names Smith. The reason why I'm bringing it up is because when he was driving that ship he crashed it also, just like he did with the titanic. I am not trying to blame anybody what the dreadful event that happened. Many of you thing that we are the reason, and we are the reason, to a point, but nobody could have predicted what was to come on that faithful night April 15th, at around 2:00am. We, as a company would like to say sorry once again for your loses.
