Notre Dame Burns Down

Recently, Notre Dame, a cathedral in Paris, burned down. It was arguably one of the most iconic symbols of France and the Catholic Church. The fire was likely caused by a construction project that was going on at the time; however, do not blame the workers: according to Damian Fleming, writing for Vox, construction/roofing projects are among the most dangerous in the world, and are incredibly easy to mess up. France has announced that it will rebuild Notre Dame, and over $1 billion dollars have already been pledged to the cause. I truly hope that one day, the magnificent cathedral will be rebuilt for future generations to enjoy.
