Monumental loss

The most perfect example of the development of the High Gothic, as originally proposed by Abbot Suger, The cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris has had its roof consumed by fire.

Almost nine centuries it has stood for all to learn from and appreciate.

I can only hope the masonry structure can be salvaged and the roof rebuilt.
