Okay…Question…

How much money in INSURANCE do you think the catholic church is getting for the fire? Even if it would be enough to pay for the rebuilding they would still take money from the people.

I am not an artist. If I had any patience at all I would have added gargoyles and golden chalices but this was done quickly because I saw a thing on Bored Panda where artists had sent in drawings of Notre Dame. They were not like this one.

Okay, so…one last short thing…

One last thing about Notre Dame.  The “tragedy,” isn’t about a building that has fire damage.  The TRAGEDY is that we can SEE that people actually CAN take immediate ACTION, when something happens that THEY CARE ABOUT. That pretty much … Continue reading

My cousin called and said, “Notre Dame in Paris, is on fire.” To be honest, my first thought was: Shakespeare & Company is kitty corner, so I hope they contain the fire so the bookstore doesn’t burn. I’ve been to Notre Dame a couple of times. They’ll rebuild, most likely using money from the poor and working class, so the rich church can keep its gold. They expect donations from around the world. Everyone was worried about the statues and art but they supposedly believe that life after death is what’s important, and that everything is only here for a short time, so it’s okay to let things go, even great works of art. Right? A million things could be said about the beauty of the architecture, but it was really dark inside. It’s a huge loss and very sad. The bookstore was fine.
