Remembering those who represented our country is a way of giving thanks even if they are already gone in this world. This All Saint's day, it is an annual tradition for the Christianized countries to visit the graveyards of their loved ones, especially if they are located near the burial site of their beloved families, friends, and relatives. But if you are located hundreds of kilometers away from your deceased loved one during All Saint's Day, the only thing for you to do is to grab any memorabilia and then pray for their souls.
In the field of beauty pageantry, there are several beauty queens who represented their countries for international beauty pageants. But it was unfortunate that they joined our creator at a very young age when they encountered an incident that took away their precious lives. Their supposed dreams were already shattered because each plan would never materialize in the near future. As a beauty queen title holder, the hopes and dreams of pursuing yourself as a role model will never materialize as you will already be in another dimension of the world who will enter the eternal life forever. The only thing that people could remember you is during All Saint's Day that happens every November 1, especially if you are living in a Christianized country.
