No words can convey the loss of this history and iconic masterpiece of human
ingenuity. I can only add my tears to the flames of loss.
Notre Dame Cathedral lost to fire. April 15th, 2019. My God, what a loss!
Thank you for taking a peek! Your support is greatly appreciated!

This is such awful, dreadful news. To think how much this magnificent architectural marvel has survived, who would have dreamed that this would be the cathedral's destiny. Fortunately many valuable artefacts/religious articles had been removed even before the restoration project commenced, and while there was a raging fire, firemen were able to rescue many important items such as the relics....so not all is lost. The bell towers were not damaged and apparently most of the stained-glass windows, such as the Rose Windows, have survived. Notre Dame is a World Heritage site, so I am confident that the rebuilding will commence in short order. I hope that wooden parts that have been partially destroyed are reused to build perhaps small alters, etc. I am so grateful that I have been fortunate enough to have visited her.
I couldn't bear to watch what happened to Notre Dame. To me, it would have been like watching World Trade Center fall again. The spires were a great loss, but I hope they can save as many of the artifacts within as possible. The great cathedral shall be renewed!
