Memorial Day is more than the kick off to the summer season. It is a time to remember the men and women who died while serving our country. There are many ways to honor our fallen soldiers (such as visiting cemeteries), and self publishing authors have the opportunity to honor them in a truly special way: by sharing their stories with the world.
Every soldier has a story. Perhaps, he is a father or husband. Maybe she joined the forces to escape a difficult home life. Maybe there is a long history of family members who all served their country. Whatever the soldier’s story, you as a writer have the ability to share it.
If you have a special person in your life who died serving our country, you could write about him or her. Or perhaps you’d like to honor several soldiers by sharing the stories of many men and women who have died for our freedom. Whatever your approach, Memorial Day is a great time to begin working a self publishing project in honor of our falling soldiers.
I’d love to know, are you working on a project to honor our service men and women?
