This fire brought back different memories for me....back to grade school. A small city in MA also had an ornate Notre Dame church that was destroyed by a fire during renovation. This church design was to replicate the one in Paris. I recall how beautiful it was. It had to be because what child recalls any building as beautiful? Especially one they had to go to weekly for mass when playing would have been so much more fun.

I went to the parish school. That day was no different, school was dismissed and we were walking 2 x 2 down the street alongside the church when I looked up and smoke was starting to be visible. I recall pointing it out to a teacher, but I don’t recall much after that. I know we continued to walk to the corner to get on the bus to head home. About 2 miles down the road we were at an intersection. I turned and saw the flames.

I was into scrapbooking at the time, mainly cutting out newspaper articles and gluing them in an album. I made an entire albulm of pics/stories from that fire. I wonder what ever happened to it.

DW and I were lucky enuff to see it a few years ago.
But we only did a superficial walk-through.

One Paris tour guide said on CNN:
Naively, he thought that it would always be there.
"Just because something is old, doesn't mean it will last forever."
