In 2012, the blockbuster film Titanic was re-released in 3D. Wikipedia defines 3D
film as “a motion picture that enhances the illusion of depth perception.” We suggest
that the 1997 film version does little to enhance the perception of depth in the
characters on the screen. We hope the current generation of young men and women will
recognize that the true legacy of the R.M.S. Titanic is not about special effects,
but about heroism and self sacrifice. The heroes of the R.M.S. Titanic had real depth
and their sacrifice was not an illusion.
Accordingly, we invite today's young people to take the motto of the sea to heart
by using the 3G slogan as an easy reminder of the true legacy of the R.M.S. Titanic.
3GTM is shorthand for Give! Give! Give! The longer version reads thus:
~GIVE what you have.~
~GIVE more than you take.~
~GIVE it your all.~TM
Fr. Thomas Byles, who sacrificed his life to comfort and pray with the passengers
on the R.M.S. Titanic. He was a shining example of the 3G Principles.
