    Fire at Paris’ Notre Dame cathedral was started by accident and is related to ongoing work, according to France 2, citing police. Either way it is terrible and a hideous blow to the symbolic heart of the city

    This is heartbreaking.

    I seldom use the word tragedy. Today is one such day.
    I cried when I heard that Palmyra, in Syria, had been destroyed by Al Qaeda. Notre Dame is one of my favorite buildings in the world.
    I cry for it.

    Don't forget the towering statues of the Buddha that were destroyed by the Taliban.

    UPDATE: Despite Trump tweeting, "perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out," French Defense ministry said dumping water on the building could cause the whole structure to collapse http://bit.ly/2GmM9QE

    It’s not just a question of money. The craftsmanship no longer exists to replace something like this.

    I’ve been to Notre Dame several times. A true highlight of visiting not just Paris, but Europe in general. I’m sorry for anyone who has missed the opportunity. It was really stunning.

    When we went to Paris it was the first place we visited. I want to dig my pictures out but I can't right now. I just hope they don't put up some concrete box and keep the towers and flying buttresses.

    The men who did the type of work required to reconstruct this are either very old or deceased.
