French Ambassador to the US Gets Emotional Talking Notre Dame on CNN: ‘It Was a Part of Ourselves’

‘I didn’t think that I could be so emotional’

EXCERPT:

TAPPER: "No need to apologize. In fact, Mr. Macron said, like all our countrymen, I’m sad tonight to see this part of us burn, the idea that Notre Dame cathedral is actually not just a building, it is part of all of France, including the French people."

ARAUD: "You know, it really — and when I was passing by Notre Dame, you know, really, I was looking at Notre Dame without a feeling. And suddenly I realize, you know, facing this disaster, this destruction, how much it mattered for us, you know? How it was a part of ourselves."
