Notre Dame Tragedy!

Jim Brown Audio Player

Our family vacation traveled to Paris in 2004 and took us to Notre Dame. The cathedral has weathered some heavy damage over the years. In 1831, the writer Victor Hugo published his novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”  Hugo wrote: “[I]t is difficult not to sigh, not to wax indignant, before the numberless degradations and mutilations which time and men have both caused the venerable monument to suffer.”  This beautiful cathedral has a long was back from the damage caused yesterday.
