This is so devastating to watch 😟 I'll never be able to see it personally the same as it was on pictures shown in our history of architecture subject... Heartbreaking 😢
It's so heartbreaking. I was in this beautiful place back in 2017 and it was by far the best thing I saw in Paris.
Love from India 🇮🇳🇮🇳
Vive la France 🇫🇷🇫🇷

I mourn the loss of the Loss of the Notre Dame. I experienced one of the highlights of my lifetime there when an American choir who recorded a hym with special permission from the priesthood in this cathedral. The harmony of the song with the acoustic of the cathedral was FANTASTIC

It has been about 1000 years and today, we lost it.
This is so sad! SO much history just got burnt to the ground. 2019 is going to be in history books... Think about that.

The spire was a monument of history. A representation of some of humanities greatest accomplishments. This is truly heartbreaking.

I am absolutely devastated. Such a magnificent piece of culture, the very best of gothic cathedrals, burning to the ground...I'm in tears. When I heard about the Notre Dame fire, I thought it was a minor thing...

Let’s hope that most of what was lost can be restored and what what can’t be restored and what can’t be restored has been photographed or digitally archived. It is a tragic cultural, religious and historic loss but we will be able to rebuild large amounts of it. It won’t be the same by any stretch but whether intentional or accidental it will comeback
Spain is with you during these difficult moments Paris, we know that beautiful cathedral will rise again one day. Stay strong our brothers and sisters. 🇨🇵
shaggy did this for sure
the buildings going to collapse and the fire is still burning
Prayers from Chicago, guérissez bientôt
