In June 2018 we paid tribute to the architects and artisans who achieved the magnificent premodern structure of the Cathedral of Notre Dame. In it, we compared the edifice with a magnificent structure of the modern era -  the Constitution of the United States of America. On April 15, 2019, the cathedral was mostly destroyed by fire. As we reflect on the tragic loss of this physical symbol of beauty and peace, we should also reflect on the preservation of our literal symbol of beauty and peace.
