Note the flying buttresses.
I learned about the flying buttresses in art class in college in 1979.
I've since pointed them out whenever I get the chance. When Katie visited Notre Dame a few weeks ago.
I told her to note them and she sent me a picture and just said, "noted".
Today when I saw on Twitter that Notre Dame was on fire I was horrified.
I was at school so I had to hold in the tears, but it was so hard to do.
My heart is broken for the congregation, for the French, and for people who love art and history all over the world. To me this was the most important building in the world.
It was beyond precious and beautiful.
It is a tragic loss.
I am heart-sick.
When the sun comes up tomorrow we will see and mourn, even greater I'm fear, what is left of this, the loveliest of buildings.
The heart and soul of Paris.
