Notre Dame Cathedral on Fire

Post by Donnie Ebert »

Seeing thousands out on the streets watching one of the symbols of their city burn is pretty moving.

I visited once, and the scale of it was overwhelming. It's hard to imagine something that huge on fire.

Always sad to see anything that iconic be destroyed. From the looks of the videos posted so far, it's pretty bad.

I was in Paris once about 15 years ago for a class. I'm not Catholic, but a bunch of us went to mass at Notre Dame. I'm really glad I did.

Well, this should make the renovations easier.

One gets the feeling this isn't going to end well. Apparently there's been a string of church vandalisms and it's believed that this was intentional.
