Which Titanic Scene Made You Cry So Badly?

If you are not a fan of tragic and disastrous films, then let Titanic change your view. It will not only make you cry, but the film teaches a lot of lessons that will last for a lifetime too.

Titanic was thought to be an unsinkable ship, however, the events proved it wrong. Instead, it resulted in many deaths because of the attempt to remove the weakness of ships. 

In the long run, it shows the benefits of being cautious and prepared. Life is unfair and unpredictable, and no invention will stop its dangers.
