As the live feeds online show the growing destruction to one of Paris’ most famous landmarks, I am in shock and horror. I feel sick. And I know I’m not alone, as millions around the world wait for news on the fate of Notre Dame Cathedral.
I’ve visited the Cathedral many times, and was excited to learn a few days ago that the statues (edit: I had incorrectly said spires when posting) were being removed for restoration. It meant that I’d be able to see them up close and personal on display during my visit to Paris next month. I’m reminded how quickly things can change. My thoughts are with everyone in Paris, especially those who continue to battle the horrific blaze.
