Titanic 100th Anniversary

As part of the 100th Anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic the great staircase from the Titanic has been duplicated at the entrance of the Halifax casino.  Lois and I viewed the staircase with a heavy heart.

Our mother is buried at the Fairview Cemetery in Halifax as are the remains of many of the Titanic victims. Over the years, and especially while I was living in Halifax and visited my mom's grave more often, we have had discussions with those who came to seek out the Titanic victim's headstones.  There were times when the tour buses bothered me as they roared in and the tourists stomped all through the graveyard seeking "Titanic" references but, for the most part, I tried to understand.

A terrible piece of history.
