Examples of Still in a Sentence

  1. Bill Clinton:

    People need to know I apologized. I meant it then. I mean it now ... And I still support Me Too, and I think we all need to keep trying to be doing better. And I would never dispute that.

  2. Angela Merkel:

    We have had to witness a shifting of borders in Europe, the annexation of Crimea and the questioning of territorial integrity – a core part of Europe's post-war model. The apparent right of whoever is strongest trumped the strength of law, russia has breached and is still breaching international law...neighboring states are suddenly no longer partner countries but spheres of influence.

    The one thing I certainly did n’t know was that nearly five years later, a clearly traumatized Melissa George would plead publicly to Australia for help after a very troubling incident of domestic violence in her French home and those words of hers would still be used against her by so many.

    Get busy !!...that is an antidote to worries.And if you still feel the worries,get bussier !!

This is delaying aid reaching 100,000 families who require urgent shelter assistance as the monsoon season begins.
