I'VE GOT TO SAY SOMETHING SINCE NO ONE ELSE HAS!!!!
Did any of you see the thing about the Notre Dame!!!!???? I haven't seen a single journal or status update from anyone on it!!!!
On Monday the Notre Dame started burning. No firefighters were anywhere nearby and even when the fire was discovered only two engines with super small hoses arrived, like A WHOLE HOUR LATER!!!
People are saying that a whole chunk of it can't be saved. HUNDREDS of years of PRICELESS art is already lost.
It's simply ghastly that no one here is talking about this, when we're such a large community of artists!!!!
I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the French revolt over this.
The French government should have put MUCH more in place for an event like this. To let it simply BURN for so long, and have such inadequate forces and anti-fire measures is unforgivable.
I get that you cant install fire sprinkler due to the way the building was built ( A very old way of making buildings ) But there were other things that could have been done. For such a priceless and world-renowned building AND piece of art, that fire shouldn't have even made it out of the room it started in.
SIMPLY UNFORGIVABLE!!!! Might as well let the Sistine Chapel and the Louvre burn down too, since no one cares about beautiful art and old architecture anymore, huh?
I can't even handle this rage and sadness I'm feeling. Even if it only ends up losing a single spire, that single spire held enough art in it to drive every billionaire in the world bankrupt.
I hope everyone looks up what happened. It's not good to be blind to what's happening in other parts of the world! Stay up to date guys! And let's mourn the lost pieces of the Notre Dame.
