Yesterday, the world lost an important piece of the past to a fire that engulfed the Notre Dame in France, taking with it centuries of history. “I was so sad that my own son won’t be able to go and see it in the exact way that I was able to experience it. There’s just so much history in terms of architecture that has been lost. It’s just devastating to think about the fact that none of that can ever be reproduced exactly as it was,” AP Seminar teacher Mrs. Essenburg said. Tourists flooded social media to share their experiences with the infamous cathedral.
