Titanic survivors Michel and Edmond Navratil were known as the ‘Titanic Orphans’ as they were the only children to be rescued without a parent or guardian. They were later reunited with their mother on May 16, 1912 after being cared for by first class passenger, Margaret Hays. The boys were aged four and two, and Michel, the older of the two, claims to remember his father saying these words to him as he placed his two sons in the last remaining lifeboat:
"My child, when your mother comes for you, as she surely will, tell her that I loved her dearly and still do. Tell her I expected her to follow us, so that we might all live happily together in the peace and freedom of the New World."

Such a sweet photo!
Some incredible sports photos taken by the photographers at the Denver Post. I have such an affinity for sports photography- they’re always such powerful emotional images.
Way cool USB Typewriters! Such an interesting idea as long as you don’t share a room with someone and are often staying up late writing essays.
