In fiction and in real life, settings can take on a life of their own. They almost become characters. For many, the burning of Notre Dame feels like a loss.
Though I walked through the cathedral years ago and felt sadness watching the flames engulf history today, what I was reminded of most strongly was the power of nature…of how in the blink of an eye, feats of architecture and human achievement can be erased.
That reminded me once again that the most enduring legacy we leave behind is not found in things–but rather resides in the minds and hearts of those we love.
