I agree about the rebuilding. It will be part of its story. Gutwrenching to watch.

What a horrific tragedy. I hope it was just an accident and wasn’t intentional. I am incredibly sad at the lost, priceless artwork.

How dare you make judgements on people who are struggling to improve their very basic standard of living in a distant country that you think you know through 5 minutes of ignorant media or 5 days as a freakin tourist!
Saidso, I am sorry you feel that way, but the movement has in fact been responsible for violent protests for months now at major landmarks in the city of Paris. I point out lighting fire to and sabotaging the Arc de Triomphe on 1 Dec. In March, for the 18th straight week of protests, the yellow vests smashed windows and lit fires up and down the Champs-Elysées. More recently they set fire to the famous cafe, Le Fouquet and other well known restaurants and boutiques. Shall I point out more?

While yes, the yellow vest movement started out peacefully about tax and employment reform, it quickly degenerated into the anti-immigrant anti-Muslim disgusting belief system. This has in turn been taken up by the far ultra right wing elements of society around the Western world and, yes, is connected to vile racism, homophobia, and religiously intolerant members of society in places like even Canada.

A simple Google of the 'yellow vest movement' should suffice.

They said it was a short circuit. Imagine being the dude who may have contributed to that...

I now believe this. If it was terrorism of any kind, they would be declaring responsibility for it. Someone left something plugged in or some other such fault. A shame.

I want to address the big money that has been raised in such a short time - especially by the incredibly wealthy the world over. While yes this landmark is important, I can think of so much more good that can come from that kind of money. I might me alone but I think that is a real shame.

I was so sad when I heard the news I've been there years ago and loved it. Luckily many parts are safe...it seemed worse at the beginning. So it can be rebuilt. I was glad to discover it, though what happened is still sad.
