Was heart broken yesterday when I saw the news that the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was on fire. It had with stood so much over the 800+ years it's been up. Call it lame but I couldn't help of thinking of Disney's "Hunchback of Notre Dame" movie. The two will be forever connected in my mind for better or worse.
I saw the tweet below last night which was pretty moving. My wife also works in the Shen School district and she told me there were students from Shen at the Cathedral earlier in the day. They are all safe. They may also have some of the last photos before the tragic fire.
As of the time I write this, the cause isn't known. Many of the artifacts were rescued and many have vowed to rebuild. More as the news comes out here
