You might think of this as a late Memorial Day post, but it’s not. It’s a very poignant piece from AR contributor Michelle Zhang, and it’s right on time.

The official Memorial Day happened on a beautiful day here in Philadelphia, PA. After a weekend of barbeques a friend and I decided to spend the day at America’s First Zoo. A zoo that first opened its doors on July 1, 1874.
Why am I saying all this? Because the reason that I was able to enjoy a nice day outside and every other day of my life here in this country is because of the men and women who fought to protect the rights and the freedoms that we love and cherish, and that many of us take for granted.
Today is not Memorial Day, but it should be. Everyday should be a Memorial Day. We should never forget and always honor these brave people. Like General Patton once said, we should be glad not only that they died protecting us, but that they also lived protecting us.
