No words are appropriate to describe this unthinkable Holy Week horror...

My wife and I were there on our honeymoon 19 years ago and are planning to go back for our 20th anniversary next summer. When you see famous places in person, some are a let down while others are even more amazing than you imagined. Notre Dame was definitely the latter, words cannot describe how awesome it was.

This is why scaffolding contractors are nearly impossible to insure.

Truly tragic and sad! Not only do we lose the iconic cathedral, but it’s hard to imagine losing some of the truly priceless artifacts housed inside.
