    Firstly I want to congratulate all of our graduating seniors.

    I want to address some of the things that I read.

    “college students across the country have protested Israel’s continued attacks on the Gaza Strip following Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack.”

    I believe that this sentence is disingenuous to the reality of the conflict. Many people have indeed started to become educated on the conflict after Oct. 7, but this sentence seems to frame the situation as something that started on Oct. 7 without acknowledging the 70+ years of genocide happening in Gaza. Students aren’t just upset with the continued bombing of innocent people since then, but rather since the forced establishment of Israel back in 1948.

    I completely understand if is required by the higher ups to frame papers a certain way, folks gotta eat, but I would love to know why Morgan has chosen to take this neutral stance on this issue.
