    Thank you very much Dan.
    .
    Breaking news: unfortunately, while I’m writing,it appears that the fire is not at all under control and the entire destruction of the building is possible.

    Notre-Dame is simply the heart of France and the most visited monument in the world (12-14 million per year).

    Our heart is bleading…

    But Notre-Dame will be rebuilt…

    “Fluctuat nec Mergitur”.

    It’s possible to make donations by going on this website : https://don.fondation-patrimoine.org/SauvonsNotreDame/~mon-don

    Some pray , some donate , some do both.

      Yes. There is an English version (top of the page).

      The amount of donations on this (official) site exceeds 5 million euros.

      But many French great companies have decided to give hundreds of millions euros.

      Today, the total amount of donations reaches about 700.000 000 euros !

      Just one hour ago, the French President have said that Notre-Dame will be rebuild in 5 years (!).
      And Notre-Dame will be more beautiful than ever.

      This is an extraordinary challenge. But, with the help of the whole world, we will succeed.

      Notre-Dame belongs to the heritage of humanity.

      Thank you very much to all our friends from all over the world.

    If the medieval structure of the building has not been damaged – this would be an unquantifiable disaster – only a part of the reconstruction of the 19th century by Viollet-le-Duc has been lost. It is not a great disaster, although those of us who love Paris are suffering to see the truncated silhouette of Notre-Dame.

    But Paris is not just Notre-Dame and the Eiffel Tour. We have to think that Paris has a thousand other wonderful things to enjoy. With or without the spire, Paris sera toujours Paris.
