    Today, the Notre Dame cathedral in France burned to the ground.

    Historical significance and background:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notre-Dame_de_Paris

    Very interesting discussions taking place on Twitter and other social media websites.

    This will dominate the news cycle for the next 24 hours, and then, likely, never be discussed heavily again.

    Personally, I am not a believer and do not think much of churches, however, hopefully they will be able to handle the situation. I heard a firefighter has unfortunately seriously injured in the firefighting.

    3 churches were just burned down in the USA, too. Very strange. I'm with @Finn on this, but still, hate to see stuff like this happening.

    It's their most visited attraction and one of historical importance, a sad day. I've been to it and it's a stunning building, huge

    What most people havn't picked up on and certainly what the media hasn't picked up on was that there was tons upon tons of lead in that roof. That smoke is highly toxic!

    Our prayers are sent. Such tragic things happen everyday but when things like this happen to historic buildings... It is such a terrible thing to see. :(

    Im so glad I had the chance to visit it, that building was amazing irl. There was a small gyros place next to it owned by a greek a guy, and he was shouting something to us, we went there and he offered some free meat as samples. We ate there like 3 times during our stay. Direct marketing works.

    Truly heart wrenching to see such history lost. 850 years of knowledge up in smoke.

    Here's a 360º view of Notre Dame HERE

    Sadly here's what's left.
