What sticks in my mind the most about everything that happened 100 years ago today, on the last night on the Titanic, is the image of the ship's band playing on while the ship was sinking. It might seem crazy to be playing music in the midst of a disaster but to my mind it was nothing short of heroic. I am sure the band members must have felt the same panic and terror as everyone. Their role was to try to keep people calm, and the only way they could do so was with music. There is still some disagreement about what was played as their final song but that really isn't important. What is important was that they played their music and the survivors remembered them and were grateful for that final gift.
