Today was a shocker – a very sad news about Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral (Our Lady of Paris Cathedral). Check out CNN’s article here.
My friends say I am fortunate that I have seen it, live, before this happened. Indeed, I feel so blessed and I wanted to share it with you. This, below, is a video with the ringing bells of Notre Dame, so make sure to turn up your volume. This was taken on the 3rd week of March this year. Now, I’m no video pro, but try to close your eyes and feel the grandeur of the Cathedral. In our minds and hearts, it lives.
It may be in a state of ruin today, but I think it would not be for long. There’s hope! See restoration plans and efforts here.
Thanks to Total for this opportunity and to Etienne Collombet and Valerie for being wonderful pushers, who encouraged me to move around Paris and showed me exactly how to reach the famous and historic Parisian monuments; and especially to Etienne for sponsoring my Metro tickets. Truly beautiful people, inside out.
