    The anniversary of the terrorist attack in Paris in 2015 be honored.

    The anniversary of the terrorist attack in Paris in 2015 be honored.


    

    Hi,

    The above blue sentence is self-made. Let's suppose that I want to write this sentence on a wall on a street. Is it natural to you?

    No. If you want to encourage people to honor the anniversary, write Honor the anniversary of the 2015 attack in Paris. This is grammatically correct but not something I'd expect to see written on a wall.

    I hope you're not suggesting that we help you to write graffiti, which is technically a crime where I live. On the assumption that you are going to write something somewhere you have already been given permission to do so, make it short and to the point. Something like "Paris 2015 - never forget", perhaps.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Is "honor" used as an imperative verb or an interjection?

    In that sentence, it's an imperative.
