Notre Dame cathedral on fire, spire reportedly collapsesA major fire has broken out at Paris's famous medieval Notre Dame cathedral, leading firefighters to evacuate the area around one of the city's most visited landmarks. How is this not rolling coverage? Why are we getting repeats of stories rather than this? What was it Israel said? God always has a plan. I’d like to hear this one reasoned away. Such a shame! I’ll be in Paris next week, and now I won’t get to see this beautiful building. PhilippeVilleneuve ok no stress.... You do not have to cry, the world belongs to God and not just a place. 🙏🏽🙌🏽🌎
