It seems that today's date, 15th April is a momentous one in history

 

  • Titanic sinks
  • The millions starving in China
  • Jallianwala Bagh massacre
  • Hillsborough disaster
  • And now Notre Dame up in flames

Good heavens.  There's food for thought.

Amazingly €700,000,000 has been raised in 24 hours to rebuild it.

Im not sure that the Army lets women do that in France although I could be wrong.

Just seen a young female firefighter who was at Notre Dame on the night of the fire.

I see from print and online media that the UK, and people involved with the York Minster and Windsor Castle restorations, have offered expert help with rebuilding Notre-Dame – a solidarity which is good to see.

 

I was particularly encouraged by this Reuters’ piece which references the Compagnons du Tour.

I also found out today that Henry VI of England was crowned  in Notre-Dame (not to mention three weddings: James V of Scotland, Mary Queen of Scots, and Charles I of England), underlining our strong historical ties.
