The loss is devastating for everyone. I've recently been studying the period around the time the cathedral was begun. I'm trying to put this into some historical perspective, if my mind doesn't fail me. When work started on the cathedral, the first Plantagenet king, Henry II of England, was on the throne and already married to Eleanor of Aquitaine for a few years. Their son Richard I (the Lionheart) was about 6 years old or so. Henry was already fussing with Becket, as well. Louis VII was king in France (Capetian, I think). Crusades were kicking into high gear.

When it was completed the first Valois was on the throne of France (Phillipe, I believe). Edward III was on the throne of England and the Hundred Years War had just gotten under way. The cathedral had seen so much and meant so much to so many. This is a sad, sad day. It's irreplaceable.

From a more temporal and personal perspective, I was there with my parents and sister in 1959... Happy times.

Today it seems it as George Harrison said: "All things must pass"( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPTHem2iu0A )

News here showed some statues that had been moved just days back in preparation for work. One hopes much was removed where possible during the initial emergency response.

Lots of work and renewal for the craft of masonry and construction which should offer a long term positive, unfortunate as the major structural loss has been. I am guessing Notre Dame has been laser scanned, painted, photographed, filmed and measured far more than most structures and this will be an immense hep in restoring and rebuilding.

A complete restoration would be marvelous. Such a priceless structure.

The bells are going to recast - not sure if that was already planned - but those bells are not too old, during the French Revolution Notre Dame's bells
were melted down to make cannon balls
