Description
This is a song dedicated to my Native American roots.......
, , About 4000 Cherokee died as a result of forcible removal from their ancestral lands in the winter of 1838 - 39.... The route they traversed and the journey itself became known as "The Trail of Tears" ........... The mothers of the Cherokee grieved so much that the chiefs prayed for a sign to lift the mother's spirits and give them strength to care for their children. From that day forward, a beautiful new flower, a rose, grew wherever a mother's tear fell to the ground. The rose is white, for the mother's tears. It has a gold center, for the gold taken from the Cherokee lands, and seven leaves on each stem that represent the seven Cherokee clans that made the journey. To this day, the Cherokee Rose prospers along the route of the "Trail of Tears"...........
