Lawrence’s Last Word: Notre Dame | The Last Word | MSNBC
In his 1969 BBC series civilization, which came to the United States a year later on, PBS the twentieth Century’s leading art historian, Lord Kenneth Clark offered this mission of civilization at the beginning of the first episode. What is civilization, I don’t know, but I think I can and I’m looking at it now and we all looked at it today. The world looked at it today and tears fell for Notre Dame cathedral in Paris and around the world. It is the first time in human history that people all over the world at the same time could watch and didn’t watch an 8 year old building burning Notre Dame has more than twice as old as the Taj Mahal another in Delhi landmark in the history of Civilization today’s lost felt like so much more than the loss of an old familiar building to fire, because it is a loss to civilization itself. If you are one of the lucky Inns of people who have visited Notre Dame Cathedral, you now know that you were among the last to see it as we knew it. No visitors again will ever see what you saw, but today France’s president Micron promised to rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral. The French will rebuild Notre Dame Cathedral, civilization will rebuild Notre dame-cathedral and your grandchildren will see something important as you did. If they get the chance to visit Paris, they will see in a rebuilt, Notre dame-cathedral civilizations perseverance. They will see civilizations strengths. They will see something you might never see. They will see the old parts of Notre-Dame Cathedral that survived the Great Fire of 2019 and then then they will see the new parts, the parts you might never see when they leave the rebuilt Cathedral. They will know this truth. Civilization cannot be built in left to stand to be stared at by tourists and study by Scholars, civilization must be built and then rebuilt and then rebuilt after the morning for what lost today, we will rebuild the world will contribute to the rebuilding of Notre Dame Cathedral And the new Notre Dame Cathedral will be a new chapter in our Never Ending Story Civilization by clicking on the button below for more from the last word and the rest of MSNBC.
