International community offers assistance in rebuilding Notre Dame Cathedral

Russia, the United States, and The Vatican joined a multitude of sovereign states in offering financial, material, and technical assistance to France in rebuilding the Notre Dame Cathedral. Much of the iconic 12th century gothic sanctuary burned to the ground on the Sunday beginning the Christian Holy Week.

Nations should come together to completely restore this awe-inspiring and reverent structure. I'm glad to see articles about the Vatican (b/c of course,) Putin, Macron, and Trump offering resources to help with the restoration. Let's see how many more nations are willing to step forward, and how many will follow-through and rebuild! Side-note: they'd better return it to its original state instead of taking the opportunity to slip in secular symbolism. That's my one concern if any of the windows were damaged, destroyed, or in need of replacement.

Russia has some great engineers, might as well take the gesture. The arson of this cathedral is a travesty to all Christians.

Lol, We have to inject politics into this? Russia can't just do something nice? People know that Russia works with the US with our space program too, right? They aren't cartoon villains, take the help when it is offered.

Although this is clearly a tragedy, it's good to see nations that we don't necessarily see eye-to-eye with coming together to fix this monument. Wishful thinking, but I hope I live to see a day where we can cooperate like this all the time.

In a way, the burning of the Notre Dame somehow symbolizes where the West, particularly Europe is heading. Most people have expressed that even if it's restored in looks, somehow it won't "feel" the same. That is true, because the society that once erected it is completely alien now compared to the one it was. When people visit Japan and go to their historical buildings, landmarks, structures etc. many do not realize that they too are restorations because the structures were either destroyed naturally or by wars. Yet, the places will still keep you mesmerized because the overall feeling of the country, the people, and their values has hardly changed. I'm having a hard time trying to express this thought eloquently, but I guess someone else out there understands what I'm trying to say.

I hope he also sends some people to investigate whether or not this was arson. The previous terror threats and holy week timing of this make the whole situation very suspicious.

Why rebuild a blatant symbol of White Supremacist Colonial Oppression?
