Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. John Delury:

    America has played a certain role in Asia since 1945 ... that role has in the end of the day been a stabilizer, that's what being undermined here with a president who thrives on unpredictability ... it's going to eat away at the fundamental credibility of the US role in Asia.

It's also the best time to highlight the fact that there is no greater disability in this world than one's inadequacy to treat other people with dignity and respect they truly deserve; regardless of their color, gender, race, religion and sexual orientation. Happy NDEAM!

  4. Arne Westad:

    The world became aware of the terrible consequences and that was very significant.

If it hadn't been for the lessons both the East and the West learned from Hiroshima, I don't think that would have happened.

  5. Rob Shuter:

    With Steven's knowledge of how to tell a story and Steven Spielberg cinematic understanding of how to tell that story, the language that Steven Spielberg speaks, the tools at Steven Spielberg disposal to capture something like the Invasion of Normandy, it was all brand new, so it was all going to be able to happen in a very fresh, very immediate kind of way, it opened up a floodgate of reminisces and understanding and I think a very, very personal connection to it. I can't tell you how many times I have come across somebody who has told me that their Dad or Grandfather never said a word about what they did from 1941-1945 until they saw' Saving Private Ryan.'.
