Letter to the Editor: Neutralize North Korean Threat

North Korea continues to expand its nuclear weapons program and is making progress in developing an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of reaching the Western U.S. It is working on miniaturizing nuclear weapons to fit on ICBMs by early 2018, and it threatens to attack the U.S. with nuclear warheads. North Korea is a virulent Communist...

After clinching second...

Get involved at Suffolk University

Haley Clegg

The transition from being a high school senior to a college freshman is a big one, and adjusting can be difficult, but it is definitely not an impossible task to accomplish. For most of us, this is the first time that we move out from under our parents roofs, where we must make a name for ourselves all on our own. This comes naturally to some, but for...

Trump is spiraling and America is being taken down with him

Patrick Holmes

America is not great. The United States has lost its morality, sensibility and kindness. We are no longer the leaders of the free world and our actions speak volumes. The rest of the world has their eyes on us and their judgmental whispers send the message. We are losing our core values. At this point, it is a cliche for baby boomers to speak about...

Senior accepts reality

Katie Dugan

When I was a senior in high school, I thought college was going to be a magical, life-affirming experience that would be absolutely perfect. Now, four years later, I realize how naive I was. The most valuable lesson that I have learned at Suffolk University is that nothing in life will be perfect. College is not all aesthetically pleasing Instagram pos...

Editor’s Word: Goodbye to Journal seniors, the ones who have seen it all

We all had no idea how hard it would be to watch three seniors leave at the end of the year to embark on their own unique journeys. To Sky, who instilled the confidence within us to write for this publication and become apart of an everlasting bond at The Journal, we thank you. To Katie, who’s creative and bubbly personality emanated the office, we will never forget you...

Degrade the North Korean economy

Donald Moskowitz

President Trump has pointed out the strong linkage between China and North Korea, and he correctly assumes China can influence North Korea’s weapons development program.  We must work with China on resolving this situation, and also on the Chinese encroachment in the South China Sea and the trade deficit imbalance. At this juncture, the North Korean nuclear missile program is o...

Rebuilding our Military with Trump

Donald Moskowitz

As a Navy veteran and a strong supporter of our military, I commend President Trump for initiating a program to rebuild our military with a defense budget increase of $54 billion. However, it should be decreased by $1.3 billion and that amount added to the Coast Guard budget within the Department of Homeland Security so it is not cut by $1.3 billion. Our military has dra...
