Guys...there must have been people inside right? Between tours and it being holy week. 

It closed to the public an hour before

Probably re-build it and make it look like the fire never happened, or maybe the opposite and let the people see that no matter what happens the Notre Dame still stands, if you get the idea. 

yeah thats what I thought. Either re-build it or change it to "the ruins of notre dame" for future tourists

Do you think they will re-build it? or will they just let the ruins in? I feel like its such a historical landmark and given the amount of damage that re-building it would just not make any sense at this point sadly. The symbolic value would no longer be there.

I imagine that they may. If anything, from an architectural point...this is one of greatest things built by human hands...it was beyond innovative at the time. 

But it won’t have the same feeling. Notre Dame held so much French history and served so many purposes over it’s tenure. It’s survival alone was a symbol...

My thoughts go to the brave firemen risking their lives for this huge piece of culture. They are so brave and I respect them so much

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

This makes me so incredibly sad. The thought that such an old historical building will soon not be here anymore, breaks my heart.

What is sad also is that there were TONS of paintings, sculptures, and important and valuable things in it. 

And those are irreplaceable

I understand that this building was not designed to withstand fire and there is really not much to be done but WHY are there no helicopters dropping water. I’m confused as hell.

The fire and smoke is too intense for helicopters to get close. 

It was the same problem in NYC during 9/11
