    Notre Dame Cathedral ..Paris

    Tragic

    We attended a wedding there 35 years ago.
    What a magnificent place.
    Such a sacred national treasure.

    Per the news (now) the firefighters are almost helpless to fight the fire due to inaccessibility.

    Paris

    I can not believe the Notre Dame Cathedral is burning and they can’t control it. I am heart broken as it was gorgeous and historic. I don’t believe anyone was hurt, they haven’t said. They were doing construction but they don’t know yet the cause.

    We have been to Notre Dame (inside and always make the climb to the top of the bell tower, too) many times on all of our Paris trips....and we will be back in Paris again this fall. This is just heartbreaking.
