Notre Dame fire reminds me of August 1993 when the covered bridge at Luzern was burned down

IIRC the bridge was built in the 14th century.

I'm glad I've had the chance to visit both wonderful treasures.

1. This is the most devastating European historical destruction, of my lifetime

I've been to Westminster Abbey, many times, so I have a deep comprehension of what is being lost in this building.

Cathedrals, like Coventry, were bombed and destroyed during WW2. St Paul's was destroyed during the Great London Fire. And now we are experiencing the kind of shock such destruction causes, first hand.

My heart breaks for the people of France.

2. Such a loss to humanity.

It is sad and very tragic.

3. Except times 1,000

It will take the remainder of my life to restore it, if it is even possible.

It's an unfathomable loss.

4. I'm reminded of the Windsor Castle fire back in the late '90s
