Early Tuesday, firefighters were still dousing1 potential hotspots in the Cathedral with water. Several hours earlier, the inferno2 was bringing down the Gothic Spire3. Hours after the fire was knocked down, people held vigil outside the Cathedral Monday night. I think we have to become a soul nation and not just a nation, and if today Emmanuel Macron wasn’t able to give his speech, I think it’s because we, the people, have to give ours.

周二清晨,消防员们还在用水管扑灭巴黎圣母院里可能燃气的火力点。几小时前,巴黎圣母院经历了炼狱式的考验。火势熄灭数小时后,周一晚上,人们在教堂外守夜。我认为我们要成为一个有灵魂的国度,而非名义上的国家。如果今天马克龙总统没能给出自己的演讲,那么我想这是因为我们法国人民必须要有自己的发声。

But French President Macron did speak around midnight, urging the international community to help in restoring the Paris landmark4 which sustained heavy interior damage. I am solemnly telling you tonight that this Cathedral will be rebuilt by all of us together. And it’s probably part of France’s destiny, and it will be our project for the years to come. I’m committed to this. Starting tomorrow, a national fundraising campaign to restore Notre Dame5 will be launched. We will call up the greatest talents. And there are a lot of them that will contribute and we will rebuild. We’ll rebuild Notre Dame because this is what the French expect, because this is our history deserves, because it’s our profound destiny.

不过,法国总统马克龙确实在午夜左右做了演讲,他敦促国际社会助力修复巴黎圣母院。巴黎圣母院的内部遭到了严重损坏。今晚,我郑重地向大家宣布,巴黎圣母院将在我们所有人的努力下得到重建。这次大火或许是我们命定的结束,也会是未来数年中我们的一个重大工程。我本人会致力于此。从明天开始,全国范围内的募资活动将开启,旨在修复巴黎圣母院。我会召集顶尖人才。这些人都会贡献自己的力量,从而重建巴黎圣母院。我们会重建巴黎圣母院,因为这是法国的期望所在,因为这是历史的诉求,因为这是我们命定的责任。

Among the hundreds of firefighters responding to the blaze, at least one of them were seriously injured battling the fire which seemed to bring Paris to a standstill as people watched in disbelief. A host of world leaders including former President Barack Obama expressed solidarity6 with fret7 and getting through the devastation8 caused by the fire.

在参与灭火的消防员中,至少有一人因为抗击大火而严重受伤。这场大火让巴黎陷入停滞的状态,而人们也都目瞪口呆、难以置信。多位世界领袖,包括美国前总统奥巴马在内,都表达了在焦灼中保持团结的讲话,号召大家一起度过大火造成的破坏。

It’s a really terrible situation. It’s more than three hundred fifty-six years of history going up in flames. It’s further impactful given that it coincides with the birth of Leonardo Da Vinci. It’s a history that is coming to an end of a global heritage, architecture. It’s incredibly unfortunate. This is something that will have the world mourning. The Cathedral had been undergoing intense restoration work which the fire service said could be linked to the blaze. French prosecutor9 says the blaze was being treated as voluntary fire indicating that foul10 play was ruled out for now.

现在形势很糟糕。这不仅因为这座有着365年历史的教堂陷入大火之中,这场大火更深的影响在于它恰逢达芬奇诞辰。这段历史写着一项国际遗产——一个伟大的建筑将要消亡。这是极其不幸的。这是全世界都要为之哀悼的。巴黎圣母院正在进行大规模修复工作,消防部门称这场修复与这次大火有关。法国检察官表示,这场大火被视为自发性火灾,并表示目前已经排除了恶意纵火的可能性。
