Walking the hollowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, D.C. evokes an unmistakable solemn reverence. Near the Iwo Jima memorial, I was blessed to find this flower bed for which I found two uniquely American perspectives. The first, I saw in the juxtaposition the greater sacrificial bloom in the foreground to the distant icons of the Nation’s Capital in the background. The second, I found in the defiant individualism in the two beds where conformity was interrupted.
