I love to study the Titanic
I shaved my head to support my uncle. He has cancer. He lost his hair because of the medicine.
What do you love about your uncle?
I love that I have his name is my middle name because we used to do everything with each other. That’s how I got the sweet little name, Julian. That’s his name and my middle name. But we call him “Baba” because my mother used to call him “brother,” so I tried to say “brother” and I said “Baba.” It was my first word!
But I really want to tell you about the Titanic because it sunk on my birthday, April 15. I love to study the Titanic. My friend Sawyer, in my first-grade class, told me about it and I got interested in it. I read lots of books about it. There were only 20 lifeboats.
What else have you learned?
It sunk on the East coast of Canada in the Atlantic Ocean. Over 705 people survived, and then there’s like 1,552 who died – women, children and men. And it has these two sister ships, I mean, actually three: Olympic, Britannic and Lusitania. And the Britannic and Lusitania got hit by German torpedoes in World War I. The Olympic made it.
