Communities across the nation honored those lost in the September 11 terrorist attacks over the weekend. The 10th anniversary of the attacks that killed thousands of innocent Americans and left millions of others scarred.

All across the nation, Americans grieved for loved ones lost in the attacks and in the wars since. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama traveled across the country to lay flowers and wreaths at the sites of the attacks. Flowers have long been given to represent hope, healing and sympathy.

White flowers can represent innocence and reverence, making them a perfect way to honor a loved one. Blue blooms can represent peace and serenity, calming worries. Sympathy flowers could include these colors or may feature bright yellow or orange blooms in an effort to cheer up the recipient.

Whether a religious gesture or one of remembrance, there are many floral bouquets or indoor plants that may bring solace or happiness to someone in grief. Honor a loved one with a framed photograph within a floral wreath, or console someone with a gift basket of food.
