RMS Titanic: a century-old legend still excites our minds.

Over the last hundred years mankind has seen a huge number of accidents, such as shipwrecks, as well as airplane crashes, and collisions of trains. We survived two world wars. Nevertheless, the story of the Titanic remains for us something special, mysterious,unique. Why Titanic? Why has this event so touched our hearts?

Why does it make us, for hundreds of times, review old photographs, study the faces of people who survived this disaster? In my opinion, an answer to this question is a mystery,too, which we can puzzle over for a long time.

Maybe we are still looking for the key to this secret as it has always been impossible to imagine how this huge ship could so easily go down…

People can't live without mysteries. Even if there weren't a mystery, we would make it up.

We still symphathize with these people and those people who lost their beloved ones. Everybody could be in their shoes. We're not tired of studing this face and reviewing the photos as these actions are symbols of human unity.

Because it was a goddamn art-deco blockbaster! For the people who lived in the early years of the 20th century this shipwreck was just as huge an event as 9-11 was for us ten years ago. And an additional public resonance catalyst was the extensive media coverage of that event. Hundreds, thousands of magazines published huge articles about the Titanic disaster, supplied with impressive photos and interviews with the survivals and relatives of the casualties.It was a real media hysteria, which reminds me of the 9-11 terrorist attacks.
And what do you think, will people remember about the 9-11 a hundred years later? Sure, they will!
