Notre Dame cathedral in Paris on fire

It's a place for a prayer. When an inanimate object, a stone structure becomes more important than the people it's meant to serve that's when the purpose of it is lost. 

Who said it was "more important" than people? There were no people hurt by this fire so we are entitled to mourn the loss of the artwork, culture, history, etc if we wish to. The building was valuable in many ways.  Another GGD member said it was "priceless".

Do you understand how an inanimate building can mean so much to some people?  We don't see a building like this as just being a structure made out of building materials. We see the heart and soul that went into it over centuries. Did you know it took 200 years to build and do you know how long it's been standing there for? It's sad that you see a beautiful building like this and just see an object.

The exterior pictures actually made it look a lot worse than what it is. Of course it’s devastating damage but the inside looks pretty untouched (apart from the hole in the ceiling where the spire was) the stone arches on the ceiling held up considerably well. The fire is out and they are still housing it down to cool the building. One of three main glass windows has gone.

Just saw this picture too! What a relief. I really was wondering how a building of stone was burning down to the ground, so I already was hoping it looked worse than it was.

I hope this is really true, because a lot will be saved if so.

That doesn't look bad at all tbh. They can just patch up the roof and it'll be good to go.

Are those pics fake? There’s no way that could be the damage because of the spire falling right? Does anyone know how the rose windows fared? I desperately hope those are okay. My history professor cried when they found out about this before class today. :(

I heard that one rose window is gone, but the other two are at least intact (although probably not well off.)

The picture is not fake. The 'ceiling' you see from the inside is the underside of the vault, made of the same stone material as the outside walls. The roof of the cathedral is made of wood and was on top of the vault; you can see the hole where the spire was because there was also a break in the vault at that location.

Seems like these windows and the rose are still intact.

The fire is under control now from what I'm reading.

Hoping the damage was less devastating then initially thought.
