Open Letter: Dear Sunflower Reply

By Adam HallenbeckSports Editor 

 

Dear Sunflower,

 

When I think about that first time I saw you, I don’t think about what was going on in my life or where we were or really anything along those lines like normal people would think about. I remember your eyes. The blue that surrounds your pupil seems deep as an ocean, but that wasn’t what caught my eye. It was the beautiful yellows and slight orange accents sitting on top, creating what looks like a sunflower.

By Casey DiBariOpinions Editor

Dear Stephen,

It’s been 10 months since you’ve been gone. 10 months since Aunt Kyle called with the news. 10 months since the wake, the funeral, and 10 months since you left to spend Mother’s Day with Valerie. In those months, we have tried to put the pieces back together, to smooth over the hole that’s been in the family and look for the bright side in every situation.

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, to marginalize someone is “…to treat someone or something as if they are not important.”  Lasell has been doing their best to address issues such as racial marginalization on campus.  They have even implemented different programs in hopes of making students of color feel welcome on campus.

Professor Paul DeBole hosted a Skype call from Secret Service Agent, Clint Hill on February 28. Hill, an agent during the presidency of John F. Kennedy, was present at the time of Kennedy’s assassination on November 22, 1963.

Hill described the events that occurred during the presidential parade, as he perceived them.  He was the first to react when shots were fired at the President and First Lady.  He saw the president grab his skull and started to fall.  “At that time, I had realized it was a gunshot,” Hill said.  Just before he made it to the vehicle to attempt to cover the president and his wife with his body, Hill heard a third gunshot.  He said, “I not only heard it.  I felt it…”
