College And University Commencements

University Commencements NOT Place For Disruptions!

The Israel-Hamas War has led to widespread demonstrations and occupations of college and university campuses, disrupting the whole purpose of higher education–to promote discussion, debate, and rational discourse.

Now, commencement time, a time of celebration of accomplishments, is threatened by disruptions, encouraged in many cases by faculty, as well as by students and outside agitators who, by their actions, are marring the experience that comes once in a lifetime for students who have accomplished their educational goals.

One can empathize and sympathize with those who are desirous of ending the Israel-Hamas War, as this author and blogger is, but the strategy of blockade and interference with the basic right of families to celebrate the accomplishments of their family members is totally uncalled for.
