Hope From Paris
It was so sad to hear about Notre Dame Cathedral burning, but all is not lost. Here are some headlines of hope from my weekly Goodnewsletter followed by a video story reporting firefighters formed a human chain to save artifacts like Jesus’s crown of thorns.
- Notre-Dame fire: Cathedral’s main structure and towers ‘saved’ thanks to firefighters
- Notre Dame Cathedral fire: Artifacts including the crown of thorns saved, reports say
- French billionaire François-Henri Pinault pledges €100 million ($113 million) to help rebuild the Notre Dame Cathedral
- French President Macron: ‘We’ll rebuild Notre-Dame together’
Police officer and Big Sister Save Baby
Big sister flagged down the police officer who successfully saved the 10 month old. The video includes a demonstration about how to help a choking baby which is good to review. However, the reporter says to continue to do back blows and chest compressions until help arrives. What I recall from my CPR training is that you can stop the compressions and back blows if the baby is clearly breathing or crying as the officer did.
Personal Good News: We’re Home!
There’s still plenty to do, but we’re back home after 7 months while our house was being renovated and re-wired. Yesterday we transported a few basic pieces of furniture in David’s truck and the weather was perfect! The washer and dryer aren’t hooked up yet, but the new fiber internet and direct TV are working. Today I’m painting the kitchen and some trim and getting organized.
