Notre-Dame

The Notre-Dame cathedral which caught fire yesterday and burned for at least eight hours before first responders were able to putout the flames. This fire destroyed more than just relics from the past as this building which construction took over two centuries from start to finish is over 850 years old and is a link to our collective past as citizens of the world. This may be a sign from our creator to remind us that we are drifting away from the moral center that has for the most part kept society in check until the arrival of the Computer and the Internet which gave all immediate access to all of the knowledge that has been suppressed from the masses for centuries. The church has become marginalized from its role as the teacher of morality, and that is a problem that need’s immediate attention by its leadership. The Catholic Church continues to have problems with priests who have molested children in the name of God. It has also paid out millions of Dollars in settlements to those who were victimized by priests People understand the meanings of signs in relationship to how society responds to them. This could be the churches 9-11, and a wake-up call for all mankind to pay attention to or suffer the consequences of our collective behaviors. There is a message here that cannot be ignored.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
