let freedom ring

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.
