If Harambe were alive, the thought of him would be dead. We've all seen the memes and the jokes, but this is a serious matter. Harambe was so much more than a gorilla, and every day, I think about him. He was more than a gorilla to me, he was a friend. Now, as we try to give him the proper sendoff, Cincinnati Zoo, the assassins, are still at large. Not only are they free, but they're telling us to stop honoring him. This is what Harambe would have wanted. In tragic times, there are only so many ways to grieve. The whole world has chosen memes and internet jokes as the primary method. However, Cincinnati Zoo, which obviously is no longer grieving, is trying to stop us. They have called our jokes offensive and stupid. But Harambe would not have had it any other way. This friend, this gorilla, symbolizes unity. The country is able to get together over a significant loss. A small bit of Harambe lives on with us, whether it be in memes or not, and no one should take that away.
