What happens when one historically important cathedral burns down? Everything goes down with it.

Notre Dame had held up after a war, a revolution, 30,000 to 40,000 tourists every day, and neglect. But it was finally knocked down April 15, 2019.

Although nobody officially knows how the fire started, French President Emmanuel Macron stated he wants to rebuild the cathedral within five years, making it more beautiful than before.

Throughout our history, we have built towns, ports, churches. Many have been burnt due to revolutions, wars, due to mankind’s mistakes. Each time we have rebuilt them,” said Macron according to CNN.com. “The fire of Notre Dame reminds us that our story never ends. And that we will always have challenges to overcome. What we believe to be indestructible can also be touched.”

The fire lasted 15 hours before firefighters were able to control and put out the fire. Later, the rain in the forecast was another obstacle to face destruction to the structure of the building.
