Sad Time in Paris

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I was really taken back observing the fire at Notre Dame yesterday. Such a beautiful and iconic building is so badly hurt. And yes I was reminded of the World Trade Center collapses.  It is hard to comprehend, watch and deal with. I can not imagine how the French are feeling.

We get used to loss as we age but when landmarks disappear it is very distressing to everyone who knew of or ever saw them. Part of our history is gone.......gone forever. Beauty is fading and now some of it will never be the same. A sad time in Paris, in France and for the world.

Hi Sheila, very sad indeed.  I pulled up the google map to get a sense of Notre Dame.  My husband has been there and was deeply saddened by what transpired.

Hi Sheila... Paris holds a very special place in my heart. I lived there. I was married there at the American Cathedral. Seeing this happen had the same impact on me as seeing the World Trade Towers collapse... I could only cry.

Even those of us who have never visited Notre Dame feel the impact of this tragedy.  I was encouraged by those who stepped up to say they will provide funds to rebuild.  There is something about historical places that are a testament to a time mankind shuffled around the planet before.  Their loss feels a little like part of a loss of ourselves.
