Notre Dame!

Burned to the ground.

But it matters not.

For it was burnt to the ground many many years ago.

Ever since when we stopped caring for religion. Ever since we stopped believing in God. Ever since we started visiting Notre Dame to see a monument and not to pray.

For this is what monuments do. From the Greek word “μνήμη”, denoting the function of the monument to sustain the memory of something.

People. Religion. Atheism. Meaning.

And in this case the monument of Notre Dame sustained the memory of something long dead. God is no longer with us. We are gods in His place. And we do not need relics of the old religion.

Notre Dame on fire.

A real disaster.

Not for religion.

But for tourists.

We have stopped caring for the essence of things a long time now. And our lust for knowledge and art had made us dead.

Notre Dame is destroyed.

So sad. Such a great loss.

Not for religion.

But for the works of art…

Shallow world.

Burning.

Even one true teardrop would suffice to take out the fire…

How could they?
