Valentine's Day can be a lonely holiday for those of us who aren't in a relationship. Holmen High School Senior Zach Peterson has what he calls an easy way to fix that - for everyone.

"A lot of people don't get flowers, and then they get mad if they don't get flowers, or sad if they don't get flowers. I am handing out roses to every girl in the school," Peterson says.

After weeks of planning, hours of prep work, and $450 later - Zack rolled in Valentine's Day morning with a cart filled with roses.

"They came in direct from Ecuador, two-day shipping," Peterson says.

Freshman through senior classes came in one by one.

"We got in here, we were like 'what's going on?' And then we saw the flowers, and...everyone freaked out. The amount of girl noises was insane," says senior Maddy Piotrowski.

Piotrowski said the single rose made her Valentine’s Day a lot better.

"I just can't believe it,” she said. “This is the first time I've ever gotten flower from anyone."

"I know a lot of them left the room crying which was really nice to know, that they actually care he went through all this work,” Zack's sister Abigail said.

The flowers weren't just for the students, either.

"Plus the lunch ladies, office ladies, guidance counselors, and my mom -- she got a bouquet this morning,” Peterson said.

It was a simple reminder this Valentine's Day that love has no limits.
