DEVASTATION - Paris' most Notorious Landmark in Ruins

This article brings light to a topic that has likely been shown to many of you. The Notre-Dame, a famous, historical landmark in Paris, France has been ravaged in fire and in flames. This 850 year old cathedral's damage has been called a "terrible tragedy" by President Emmanuel Macron, the cause of which is not clear. Many people near the Notre-Dame and even those that are thousands of kilometers who witness the event on the news have weeped for the loss of this archaic structure. Macron himself cancelled a speech in regards to protests in France and has vowed to restore the cathedral with fundraising efforts. I am shook myself by this event since five years ago I visited Paris and experienced the astounding and wondrous artworks, although not the originals, the massive insides of the giant building and the sheer number of people coming to pay a visit, take pictures or pray. What I know for certain is that since the 1200s, when the Notre-Dame was built, this monument has experienced thumps and tumbles throughout history and every single time it was rebuilt to its former glory and this event on April 15th, 2019 is but another one of those bumps that will scratch but not shake the foundation that the Notre-Dame stands on.
