Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is Burning

I felt so sad today while watching life this massive fire rips through Notre Dame Cathedral, one of the symbols of Paris. It all started Monday, April 15 at about 7 pm local time.

No casualties are reported, but the damage to the monument is devastating, causing  the roof to collapse and destroying possibly the entire wooden interior of the temple as well as countless artifacts inside.

Even as we speak Parisians are helplessly witnessing the spear of the cathedral to collapse unable to do anything to save it. The tragic event occurs just days before Easter.

Paris will never be the same, nor will we, as this is a sad loss of our cultural heritage.
