So sad :(

The news is breaking that the beautiful medieval cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris is on fire  and the fire is getting out of contol - one of the spires has already collapsed.

Firefighters are working bravely and tirelessly to try to save it, and I hope so much they succeed in salvaging something, and most importantly stay safe.  No injury or loss of life is reported so far involving either the firefighters or the general population, and I sincerely hope with all my heart that it stays that way.

Its such a magnificent building. Although I'm not interested in the religious aspect of it, I wholly appreciate its significance to Paris, to France and to Europe as a historical icon.    The sheer potential for loss of centuries of art, literature and groundbreaking architecture, and just the great historical importance  of this gothic masterpiece breaks my heart.
