My heart goes out to those GA Members in Paris, France. It's Heartbreaking to see the famous Notre Dame Cathedral in flames.

there's video in this story that shows the spire collapsing i'm just heartbroken over this
I visited Notre Dame, among other places in Paris, when I was 19. My brother and I backpacked through Europe for a month. 30 years later, I remember stepping into that cathedral like it was yesterday. It was a cathartic experience, for both of us. Service was being held, incense was burning, smoke was rising to the stained glass windows above. We sat in the rear, silent and mesmerized, while careless tourists circled around snapping photos, talking among themselves. Notre Dame made a tremendous impact on me that day, and I can honestly say this incident has left me feeling pretty heartbroken. I am thankful, however, that no one was harmed. That's the most important thing.
