one world trade center-freedom tower [Dec. 2011]
One World Trade Center, now up to 100 floors, will be the tallest building in Manhattan in a matter of days. Standing in front of this massive construction site was overwhelming. Mostly because it was painful to imagine what the area must have looked like moments [days, weeks, and months] after the two towers collapsed.
This time-lapse video is breathtaking documentation of the rebuild. Many years condensed into less than 2 minutes.
So happy to see the WTC 1 towering over the skyline. It is a true symbol of resilience. While deep, deep wounds may not completely heal, we can rebuild. In the midst of sorrow, despair, or heartache there is a chance to emerge from the rubble and stand tall once again.
