we were driving back home and all of a sudden the radio starts beeping and there is a tornado warning right above us!!!! We quickly stopped at a gas station. We then heard a loud announcement over the intercom saying that the tornado was coming and to stay under cover! When the storm was done we had lost everything and the store was destroyed!

I am a huge Titanic fan, and think that the crew of the Titanic worked the hardest that they could to save the lives of the people on the ship, though I do not agree with the rich goes first rule. I do not think that their live has anymore value then the 3rd class people. I myself am a 2nd class person and do not think I am any cheaper than others.

My grandfather worked in the shipyards in Beflast and helped to build the Titanic's engine. He later emigrated to the United States and worked for the Coast Guard.
