Notre Dame

It struck me that there are hardly any humman made structures of such a scale and magnificence that are as old or older.

The Colosseum, The Great Pyramids, ancient sites like Carnac and Stonehenge, perhaps Mount Rushmore and the Burg Khalifa for the modern age.

Notre Dame is a soaring and magnificent symbol of the Churches link between the fall of Rome and the Dark Age that followed, to the Renaissence, built upon what had been carried through of Greek and Roman knowledge. It's not just a part of Parisien or even French cultural heritage. It's part of Europe's.

I hope they can save at least some of it.
