Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Bernie Sanders:

    Liberty University was kind enough to invite me to address a convocation and I decided to accept, it goes without saying that my views on many issues -- women's rights, gay rights, education and many other issues -- are very different from the opinions of some in the Liberty University community. It is very easy for a candidate to speak to people who hold the same views. It's harder but important to reach out to others who look at the world differently. I look forward to meeting with the students and faculty of Liberty University.
