Last night, Paris and people all around the world watched Notre Dâme in flames. As we saw la flèche and other major components of the cathedral fall to the ground, our collective hearts were sinking with it. In the flames, a part of our history was burning away.
The Cathedral Notre Dame is in the heart of the city of Paris and is the soul of the capital. People from all religions and walks of life had their special story to tell.
Just last fall, we stood there and reveled at its beauty and magic. Little did we know she too was vulnerable .
We were and will remain, always and forever, in awe of our Dame de coeur and in time, she will rise again from the ashes to inspire move us every step of the way.
