It was heartbreaking to see the fire engulf the cathedral. It’s horrifying at any time, but right before Easter to have this happen seems like an even greater tragedy.
One thing I am noticing as the day goes on however is that my Facebook feed has changed. It started with photos of fire and people expressing their shock
But it changed as the hours went by. I started noticing photos being put up of my Facebook friends at Notre Dame. Memories were being shared as people described their trip to the cathedral, expressing their wonder at the structure and at the art inside of it
It seems so often in tragedy people find their light. Since the only choices are fear or love, I am delighted to see how often people are choosing love
