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.
