In Memory of Notre Dame, Paris

Uploaded: April 15, 2019 | Entered: April 15, 2019 11:41:41


The world has lost one of its most famous landmarks to a destructive fire today. The main middle spire collapsed to the interior, fire fighters have had difficulty getting to the area with equipment to help control the destruction. We have lost one of the most sacred, holy and magnificent structures on earth. Fortunately I got to live in eye sight of Notre Dame for a week in May 2018. It is a great tragedy and loss for the world.
