Remembering the Titanic

Friday night Dad and Daniel went to the Men and Boys Titanic Dinner hosted by Vision Forum and
"Once upon a time, not so long ago, boys held the door for girls, husbands spoke with tenderness of their wives, men gave up their seats for women, and sacrifice was the defining quality of bold manhood.
"Today, many have forgotten this culture of Christendom. But because of one remarkable evening in 1912, the entire world can be reminded that nobility transcends avarice, that there can be mercy even in the midst of judgment and that “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”..." From the Vision Forum web site

Charlie Zahm, a favorite soloist and singer of Celtic, Maritime and Early American music was a guest at the event.

Mr. Doug Phillips retold the story of the Titanic and of the men who gave up their seats in the life boats for women and children.

Mr. Bill Potter stands in front of the monument erected by the women of America which quotes,
"To the young and the old, the rich and the poor, the ignorant and the learned
all who gave up their lives nobly to save women and children"

Singing "Nearer My God to Thee"
