Notre Dame 3

Qual a razão de ficarmos horrorizados com um incêndio como Notre Dame? Quartz lembrou com precisão escritora crota Slavenka Drakulić

We expect people to die. We count on our own lives to end. The destruction of a monument to civilization is something else. The bridge, in all its beauty and grace, was built to outlive us; it was an attempt to grasp eternity. Because it was the product of both individual creative and collective experience, it transcended our individual destiny. A dead woman is one of us—but the bridge is all of us, forever.
