Notre Dame Cathedral is Burning

The most recognized cathedral in the world, standing for over 800 years, is on fire even now. The spire has apparently collapsed. At this time, the fire is said to be accidental in origin, possibly stemming from an electrical failure in equipment used for the ongoing renovation.

...at this time, I ask all of you--even those not of a religious persuasion--to spare a thought for those working on trying to contain the fire and those whose livelihoods (renovating the cathedral) may be adversely affected by this. The cathedral at Notre Dame has stood for 850 years....we can only hope and pray that it keeps standing after the damage dealt to it today.
Through the darkness of future past,
The magician longs to see....
One chants out between two worlds:
"Fire...walk with me."

That is so very sad :( For those who do not view it as a religious symbol, it is at least an architectural wonder. And all the firefighters battling this blaze are tremendously brave; as the granddaughter of a 40-year fire-fighting veteran, I have nothing but the utmost respect for them. It seems the world has lost a great building today.

Many blessings to all.
