In the United States of America – a country with which some characters might be familiar – Monday was Memorial Day, a federal holiday established to commemorate our nation's fallen soldiers. In honor of this annual day of respect, communities throughout the country hosted well-attended ceremonies, while many Americans celebrated with barbecues, picnics, and other outdoor gatherings.
The holiday made me wonder how other cultures mourn and celebrate their deceased soldiers and warriors. So, authors and characters, I ask you:
How do you honor the men, women, and creatures that have died while serving in your homeland's armed forces? With plaques, parades, songs, dances, or something else altogether?
