PARIS — Just a couple of days ago, Severine Vilbert strolled by Notre Dame with her eldest daughter on a chilly but brilliantly sunny day. The blossoms were out and the cathedral glistened in the light.
"We were looking at Notre Dame and saying, ‘Wow, it's such a beautiful monument, how proud we were to be Parisian and live in this beautiful city,'" Vilbert recalled, not bothering to fight back tears. "And then, it was like a nightmare for us."
On Tuesday, Vilbert retraced her footsteps in a transformed Paris. A few drops of rain fell from a slate grey sky, as she joined thousands of Parisians and tourists paying a vigil of sorts to a smoking-but-still-cherished icon.
