Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead forgiving, creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into hope for the future. Lewis B Smedes
One year after the Titanic sank, the Titanic Memorial Lighthouse and time ball was built in 1913 to honor the victims atop Seamen’s Church. In 1976, it was donated to South Seaport Museum and moved to Titanic Memorial Park in Manhattan. The Time ball inspired the New Year’s Eve Time Drop.
The Friends of the Titanic launched a GoFundme fundraiser to restore the lighthouse on the 110th Anniversary of the tragedy on April 15, 2022. Join living relatives of the passengers and crew in preserving their memories by helping to restore the Titanic Memorial Lighthouse. A portion of the purchase will be donated to The Friends of The Titanic.
