Restoration at Notre Dame had been an ongoing project. Prior to the fire, funding was always in short supply. With this tragic event, the worlds love for Notre Dame has answered the call to support reconstruction efforts.
The roof and spire are gone, but what survives is a miracle. The relics. The altar. Three rose windows.
We all embrace Paris. We mourn this tragic event, but we look forward with hope for the future of Notre Dame.
