Japanese Sumo Wrestling Cards and Menko
Devastating. So much history there.
There was. I heard they were able to save some things due to quick thinking and action.
That does suck. I visited Notre Dame when I was a kid, it was beautiful. And hopefully will be again.
Fortunately I think it will be beautiful again! Never got to visit..
Notre Dame was timeless. Nearly 1000 years of history; surviving wars and only now, it burns. A forest in flames. It will be rebuilt but is somewhat robbed of its 'natural' beauty. My heart goes out to Paris, and to Catholics everywhere during this Holy Week.
It was hard to watch and I was really feeling so sad watching it all destroyed in a few hours. Fortunately the walls and bell towers are still up.
Heard about the fire at lunch today and was heart broken. Thoughts are with the people of Paris and all of the firefighters and other people working their butts off to save this historical monument.
The firefighters were true heroes saving the bell towers!
