First and foremost, I sure hope that it is nothing more than a tragic accident.
I hate to even think that ….
But, where the heck was God?
This is why I am an unbeliever and always have been. Also, why I refuse to pray — to anybody.
If, God or the Virgin Mary will not intercede to save Notre Dame it is unlikely that they will jump to my aid when I bust a knee.

The Paris fire department had NO CONTINGENCY plans for this?
Jesus. That seems irresponsible and incompetent — when for the lovely French.
As some of you know I love cathedrals — albeit, I am shamelessly biased towards the beautiful British Cathedrals.
That said, I am quite partial to Notre Dame. I have visited it MANY times. Remember I lived in Paris for 1-year, and my parents lived there for over 15-years.
This is a shame.
NO we can’t rebuild it to its original glory. We no longer have the skills.
Redoing in glass, which I know the French will look at, is NOT going to cut it.
A sad day for us. Kind of like a 9/11 — though without, luckily, the loss of life.
