  8. Any major fire is disastrous. How ever one that served it's Purpose as a spiritual footing. Makes me wonder if it was a terrorist attack against the world. Something that would terrorize many of the world. We must look at reason and motive. Such a sad thing to the worlds believers. Our prayers are with you. USA.

  9. I hate how people find a way to throw around religion in any subject. Things happen. Not everything has to be about "Gods Judgement" or the "Wrath of God". Fires happen all the time, for dozens of reasons.

    I send my condolensces to the people of France. That is part of French history and the World history destroyed.

    ❤ from the U.S

  23. If Notre Dame is French ? Then why in America is it known as the fighting Irish ? Seriously ? Not trying to be ignorant. Just doesn't make sense…

  24. To think it survived so many wars then this 🙁

  25. I heard information that the fire was started by accident by a construction crew. Notre dame has been subject to construction to restore its structural integrity and the fire started ~5-6 minutes after the visitations closed. More than likely when the construction crew came in. Its quite a tragedy what happened here but it is simply noone’s fault if the situation I am saying is correct. This will be in the history books as a loss of culture and history. Paris will rebuild.

  26. You guys realize the notre dame was rebuilt in the 1800s? That wasn’t the original. All the original pats survived including the 2 bell towers. Still, it’s a tragedy.

  29. Terribly sad, but I'm sure the French must have been buoyed by that expert fire-fighting advice from our president.
