I don't even know what to say. What a loss to Paris, to the world, to all of us who love Paris, and to everyone who never had the chance to get there to see Notre-Dame Cathedral.
Building started on it in 1163. It survived the French Revolution, two world wars. I can't believe it. I was there in September 2017 with three friends, including Kaye Wilkinson Barley, a trip I'll never forget. My father, who was there in the 1950s, wanted me to see Paris. I'm sure Notre-Dame Cathedral was one site he wanted me to see.
All I can do is pay tribute. It's a loss to all of us.
