ARLINGTON--WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA, DECEMBER 12, 2009

Andrea Shea King made her way to Arlington National Cemetery again this year for the annual wreath laying ceremony. Sometimes words and pictures alone don't come close to describing what it's like to witness this solemn event, one that takes place across the nation at hundreds of cemeteries simultaneously.

However, Andrea has done an excellent job with her words and pictures in conveying the heartfelt gratitude--and sadness--that was on display Saturday morning. The first picture brings it all into focus for me:

A Field of Dreams
