    102 Years After Titanic Sinks – Korean Tragedy

    Today in Tokyo I as I sat down to take my Boat Operators Licence, tragedy began to unfold in neighbouring South Korea as a Korean Ferry packed with High School kids began to sink!

    As an Elementary School teacher here in Tokyo, I can relate to the tragedy that was unfolding for the teachers and students there twofold!

    Ironically this tragedy comes exactly 102 years to the day, when, thousands of miles away, and in a timezone where the 16th of April was the 15th of April and therefore the tragic day that the Oceans greatest tragedy unfolded as the H.M.S Titanic sunk in the seas of the Atlantic!

    I hope and pray that as many survivors can be be saved as possible.
