A frozen Tear

My husband and I laid wreaths on Dec 17th at Arlington cemetery in VA. It was very emotional. Every stone got a wreath. It was very cold and sleeting but it did not stop over 50,000 people from helping that day. This one touched my heart. It was a rose frozen but dripped and made it look like a tear.
