*”Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” by Gordon Lightfoot
It was 38 years ago tonight–10 November 1975–that the Great Lakes freighter Edmund Fitzgerald sank on Lake Superior during a tremendous gale.
Sound the bell and say a prayer in memory of all 29 men on board who were lost, and for the families they left on shore. Take a moment of silence. Behold the lake with awe, fear, and respect.
