Today marks the 100TH anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.  The Titanic was hailed as the “unsinkable ship”.  However, in the early hours of the morning at approximately 2:20 a.m. on April 15, 1912, she dove two miles beneath the icy surface of the North Atlantic of the coast of Newfoundland.  A deep sea grave holds the Titanic, but a few of her relics have been rescued.  Her story and legend will forever live on in our hearts and memories.
