Put any footage of New York City to some sweeping, dramatic music, and you can make the most cold-hearted person feel some feels. But we bet that this time-lapsed video of the construction of One World Trade Center takes the cake. In just over two minutes, the emotional video shows just what we've accomplished since 9/11, and shows off the majestic skyscraper that now stands proudly where the Twin Towers once did.
Done by EarthCam, the video follows the literal rise of the new World Trade Center building, from the ruins of ground zero to the building's shiny, new heights. It's hard not to think about the devastating attacks that brought us here, but that collective baggage also make this really inspiring and uplifting to watch. It'll give you chills, make you cry, make your heart soar, or all of the above.
Watch the touching video above.
