Default Notre Dame burning

This is just awful to watch. It looks as if there will be almost complete destruction of an amazingly important piece of history.

This breaks my heart. We just got our passports last spring, we did Paris and London for the first time in October. I didn’t expect the first day would be so hard on me for jet lag so all my perfect schedule planning went out the window. The afternoon we were supposed to visit Notre Dame we ended up just having a picnic at the park in front of the Eiffel Tower instead, and resting. We had already walked so much (especially for six year old legs) - I thought, “there’s still so much to come back and see properly, we’ll save Notre Dame for next time”
Now I’m not even sure it will be there. And what of the artifacts? Will they be saved? My heart is breaking over such an overwhelming loss to the world.

How very sad to see such a noble piece of history destroyed. Devastating. How did it get started? Do they know?

I read it started on scaffolding from the repair work going on? I guess no real answers as of yet

Boy, that will be some kind of investigation, huh. Maybe a power tool caused it or...? If some worker caused it, can you imagine???? The guilt, the trouble he might be in. OMG. The weight of the world will be on someone if indeed they were at fault. It could have been something unavoidable perhaps though. Whatever it is, it's a darn shame.
