According to “A History In Numbers” by Dave Fowler, only 706 people aboard the Titanic survived the terrible accident, while the other 1,529 were taken down with the ship. Many people believed the iceberg was to blame for the sinking of the ship; however, the problems surrounding the ship began long before the ship set sail. “R.M.S Titanic” by Hanson W. Baldwin revealed that the crew was so confident in the ship’s inability to sink that they did not even pack enough lifeboats in case of an emergency. Furthermore, the captain and crew neglected to practice many safety drills that could have possibly saved many lives. The Titanic was doomed once the captain and crew set foot on the ship because of the arrogant aura they carried which resulted in the confusion and lack of resources that were obtainable during the sinking to many of the passengers including Master Harold Victor Goodwin and his family.
After being sent to Tulsa, Willows wrote, “it seemed clear that the trouble did not have any providential causes, and, as the Red Cross had never taken a hand in man-made disasters, I called Washington with the report that: there was an unknown number of homeless refugees, all negroes; there was no adequate relief organization in town; on account of the divisions between the whites and negroes…”. The American Red Cross responded within the first 24 hours of the riot and found over 8000 homeless African Americans. The Red Cross also found that African Americans were denied adequate treatment and set up a makeshift hospital in a local school, and manned two first aid and infant welfare stations. While working in Tulsa, a Red Cross nurse stated, “I can never erase the sights of my first visit to the hospital. There were men wounded in every conceivable way, like soldiers after a big battle.
The priests were still collecting themselves when they passed by the ruins of houses and heard screams for help. Sadly, “because of the fire it was too late to help”(Hersey 28). This is the first example of the worst human experience. Father Kleinsorge and the other priests had to make the decision not to help people who were trapped and soon to be killed by the fires. In the image above, fires from the explosion of the atomic bomb take over the city of Hiroshima.
When it started to storm, Doodle fell down and brother kept running away. “The knowledge that Doodle’s and my plans had come to naught was bitter, and that streak of cruelty within me awakened. I ran as fast as I could, leaving him far behind with a wall of rain dividing us” (Hurst 6). Doodle was too tired and overworked to run home in the storm which caused him to die. Brother could have ran back to save Doodle, but he was to overcome with anger over the fact that he was not able to teach Doodle sufficiently.
(History.com staff) “2.5m people fled the areas that had been affected by the dust bowl”. Because of all the debris, it was hard to even breathe in that area. “Dust clouds rose as high as 10,000, making it impossible for people to live there”. The dust clouds not only were super big, but took a long time to go by too. “Drought struck from 1934 until 1937 there was a drought, so there was no water for the families”.
Page 27). On Columbus’s boats brought disease which the Natives had never experienced before. Since their immune system did not know how to fight it and there was no medicine a lot of them died.

A man named Robert Ballard states that he does not believe in Atlantis because the times do not add up in Plato’s book. It says that the city sank during the time of the volcanic eruption, when there was not a volcanic eruption that took place during that time. The story of Atlantis is about a high tech and very highly advanced city that people lived in, the people became very greedy and the city started losing everything they had because the people were not being fair. Gods that ruled over the city became infuriated and to pay back what had been done, the Gods sank Atlantis by sending large waves and storms through the sea. Before it was destroyed the city was mostly referred to a “utopia”.
The Europeans came to America for many reasons but the biggest was wealth. One thing they brought with them was smallpox which had disastrous effects because the Cherokee’s immune system was never introduced to the disease. The medicine men were incapable of finding a cure so they went to the traditional purification treatment, sitting in sweat houses before wading in the chilling streams. This treatment only increased the number of deaths which was around 7,000 to 10,000 Cherokees. The Cherokees tribe suffered heavy losses due to the illness and at the end nearly half of the tribe was dead.
In the mid 1900 's blacks were treated just as poorly as they were 100 years ago. They didn’t have equal or civil rights, nor did they ever get good paying jobs. This was when Martin Luther King Jr, Leader of his church became the leader of the most memorable protests in history. He was prone to violence and none of his follower raised a hand toward anyone who were beating them. Once the US went too far and made a devastating decision it create a whole new world of opportunities.
A six-month examination by The Times found that the rescuers ' ability to save themselves and others was hobbled by technical difficulties, a history of tribal feuding and management lapses that have been part of the emergency response culture in New York City and other regions for years. The other flaws in their plan were lapses in leadership and coordination and a lack of proper planning and training and lack of emergency resources (ambulances). Due to lack of coordination, the Fire Department could not account for the number of fighters that were sent into the towers, and where they died. The Emergency Medical Service said they only had ambulances for 400 calls while the chief of the Port Authority police said the region 's bridges, tunnels, and ports were drained of
Have you ever imagined being in the middle of a 200 year war people dropping like flies just because of an argument over one city? In document 6 it states that “That the fourth Crusade was a wasteful and destructive event that resulted only in further dividing the Christian world.

first casualty of these bomb attacks was a 65 year old veteran who was one month away from his retirement. FLQ’s total disregard for human lives was evident from their most devastating attack on the Montreal stock exchange, on Feb. 13th 1969, This explosion caused massive destruction, estimated in the millions of dollars, and seriously injured 27 people. Despite such gruesome acts by the terrorist organization like FLQ, the authorities in the province of Quebec seemed powerless as they were unable to raid and make arrest of suspects unless they are granted warrants, which sometimes took months to obtain. Some people might argue that only two high profile kidnappings don’t provide
Even though the government was trying to track terrorist they weren 't able to track the 9/11 terrorist. Their location was so close to the NSA they still couldn 't prevent the attacks The final result of this tragic event was the destruction of the twin towers, World Trade Center 7, minor damages to the Pentagon and thousands of lives. A protest group called the 9/11 truthers protest in the streets to find out what they believe is the truth behind 9/11. Truthers believe that 9/11 was a planned event by the government or it was an controlled demolition.. Psychic experts report out that “The towers didn’t fall from the planes alone” some believe that there was more happening inside the World Trade Centers than just fires from the planes. Evidence shows that both World Trade Centers fell at “freefall speed” which is faster than 100 MPH.
Valley Forge It is really cold, and there is no supplies. The date is December 18,1777 we are at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania and the situation is horrible, we have no meat, no clothes, and no medicine, also lots of people are dying because of smallpox and other diseases.
