There was a black family in Scotland years ago. They
were Clark family with nine children. They had a dream to go to America. The
family worked and saved. They were making plan to travel with their children to
America. It had taken several years but finally they had saved enough money.
They had gotten passport. They had booked seats for the whole family member in
a new liner to America.
The entire family was full of anticipation and
excitement with their new life in America. However few days before their
departure, the youngest son was bitten by a dog. The doctor sewed up the boy.
Because of the possibility of getting rabies, there were being quarantined for
long days. They were in quarantine when the departure time came. The family
dreams were dashed. They could not make the trip to America as they had
The father was full of disappointed and anger. He
stomped the dock to watch the ship leaved without him and his family. He shed
tears of disappointment. He cursed both his son and God for the misfortune.
Five days latter, the tragic news spread throughout
Scotland. The ship, the mighty Titanic, had shank. It took hundreds of
passenger and crew with it. Titanic which had been called the unsinkable ship had
sunk. It was unbelievable but it was.
The Clak family should have been on that ship, but
because of the bitten son by a dog, they were left behind. When the father
heard the news, he hugged the son and thanked him for saving the family. He
thanked God for saving their lives. It was a blessing behind a tragedy.
