The Ship in better days
The Situation now
There is something really sad (in my opinion) in the destruction of history. Especially important history and real examples of history. But no one was hurt or killed in this situation, I guess the ship is not that important in the meaning of life. I remember seeing a programme about a historic library in Germany accidentally was set alight and people were going in trying to save some of the very important texts and books and manuscripts contained within. Maybe history and fate results in some course of the future where things will get destroyed. I visited the Cutty Sark a lot as a child and had been on it! But not been for years but it was just a landmark that was always there.
Apparently it will cost millions to rebuild and fix it. I am in two minds if it should be reconstructed or not. I think I am largely moving towards the view on fixing it all up, just because that local area owes a lot to it, and its tourism that it brings (there is nothing else interesting in that area of London lol)
I guess its just material things, life goes on without it or in its bad state :(
