    Some truly awful news this evening. Not military, but history all the same. The famous Notre Dame cathedral in Paris is burning.

    Notre-Dame fire: Spire collapses as 'terrible' blaze breaks out at 12th century cathedral | World News | Sky News

    The spire has already collapsed. 850 years of history is going up in smoke. An absolute tragedy.

    I got the BBC news notification during my revision. A truly horrible event

    It survived the Black Death, the French Revolution, two world wars. The west side towers have survived, as has the rest of the stone structure. The spire, along with the rest of the roof, has been completely destroyed.

    This is truly awful news, a cultural icon, gone in a few hours. I visited in 2010 with my wife to meet her father.

    You were fortunate to have seen it, at least. Not only a religious icon, but a milestone of human history. To think, it took over 100 years to build. All gone in a few short hours.

    Yes, truly shocking.

    It sounds like at least some if it may be saved.

    A sad turn of events. Almost indicative of the way the world is going at this juncture in time. Terrible.

    Stunned, absolutely without words at the moment.

    Billionaires are now having a Money Fight over saving the building, it will be fine.
    I was very sad to hear about the fire.
    But now the response has laid bare the vast inequality of the super rich, verses the common man.
    Cheers Chris
