A sad sight to watch such a symbolic and historical building which lasted 850 years was 200 years in the making and took some 63 minutes to be devastated. But it was just a building after all – well not for the French people it isn’t it is a symbol of France surviving a revolution and 2 World Wars. For me to see something so beautiful damaged is very sad, Glasgow recently lost the Rennie Mackintosh Glasgow School of Art also to fire. Dresden, Coventry all lost not only buildings but lives, Norway and more recently New Zealand suffered horrific human tragedy – I could go on and on but we can and we will rebuild or indeed something new and fresh will be regenerated. Life will continue – people and art will show us how.
