The Notre Dame cathedral has burned down! What an absolute tragedy.
I spent the whole day analyzing poetry, so I feel justified in pointing out the symbolism of one of the central images of European Christianity being destroyed in the aftermath of Christianity dying in Europe. (There is a million links on what’s happening with cathedrals in France. Please look them up before contradicting).
The newscaster is crying on TV and can’t finish the segment. I don’t blame her. I’d blame her if she didn’t because people who aren’t hurt by this are not really alive.
