Based on some situations originated by James Cameron.
What would everybody else’s lives have been like if Jack Dawson had survived the Titanic tragedy? It might have been simple, it might have been surprising, but anything was possible. There was no explaining something that would shock the world. Now, let's take a look.
Rose DeWitt Bukater...
Not only would her name be changed to Rose Dawson, she would even be married to Jack. She had a child with him, though she didn't realize it until May 15, 1912, exactly one month after the sinking of the Titanic. She named the baby girl Elizabeth. They never starved, but that didn't mean that they were rich, either. Jack worked for a living. His job was as an artist, and many rich people invited him to their mansions to draw or paint for them. They both lived long, healthy lives. They both died in their sleep. Jack died on April 14, 1997, and Rose died a day later, which was April the fifteenth.
That was how Rose's life would be with Jack.
He didn’t know that Rose got off the ship alive, but later that year, he bumped into Jack and Rose holding hands. He got really mad and slapped Rose hard on the face, but Rose just informed him that she was having a baby, and it was Jack's. From that day forward, Cal himself only sometimes made appearances in public. He got married, of course, but as the movie suggested, Cal committed suicide in 1929.
Ruth DeWitt Bukater...
Ruth never truly recovered from the loss of her daughter. Rose tracked her down and found out that Cal had left her immediately when he had thought that Rose hadn't survived the tragedy. How cruel he is, thought both Ruth and Rose. Ruth later went to live with the new Dawson family. In addition, she became a grandmother a couple of months later, which made her more eager to be with them and gave her more of a reason to go live with them. Later in her life, she became ill and died of the illness. She was seventy-two. Rose, Jack, and Elizabeth were all heartbroken. Even though Ruth's voice, laughter, and smile were no longer with them, her spirit would never leave each and every one of their hearts.
Oh, the Unsinkable Molly Brown! She was invited to Jack and Rose's wedding. She wasn't that hard to find. In fact, she was rather popular. She was often in the news. The Dawson family was very grateful for everything Molly helped them with. Her life was full of happiness. Her heroic tale was passed down from generation to generation.
Yes...that's what I expect people's lives would be. One person really would make a difference. Oh, how I truly wish Jack had survived. Oh, how I wish!
Even though many lives were lost on the night of April 15, 1912, Titanic will always be the ship of dreams. It was the Titanic that made people realize the importance of being grateful for what they had; it was the Titanic that led many people to fall in love, a love that they held to; and it was the Titanic that changed many people and their lives forever.
The Titanic was a place where dreams had no end...and that, my friend, is a fact that can't be changed. It is a fact for eternity...like the love of Jack and Rose, which was also for eternity.
