Examples of brothers in a Sentence

  1. Donald Wuerl:

    Yes, my brothers and sisters, shame, i wish I could re-do everything over these 30 years as a bishop and each time get it always right. That's not the case. I do think together, asking for God's mercy, pleading for God's grace, recognizing that we can move into light, I simply ask you to keep me, keep all of those that have been abused, all of those who have suffered, all of the church in your prayers.

  2. Popole Misenga:

    I can hardly believe I’m here with so many people listening to us, when I think of those things all those years ago I feel sad. I haven't seen my family for 18 years. I have two brothers, I don’t know what they will look like now as we were separated when we were small.

  3. Delores Seats:

    I don't think today there is any news that's particularly concerning other than disappointing guidance from Kohl's and disappointing results from Toll Brothers, i don't think it's anything other than some profit taking.

  5. Carl Higbie:

    For this test to become mainstream it would A.) save lives and B.) save the VA probably billions in dollars in overmedication costs, and yet they’re not doing it and it’s like leaving your brothers out to dry, the overwhelming consensus of the pharmacogenomic community is that most of these tests currently lack evidence of clinical effectiveness. That means they have not shown to have better outcomes over the usual methods of drug prescription, with some exceptions. Many commercial tests target psychiatric disease therapy and pain management. One recent VA review documented that these tests do not yet have evidence for utility, especially in the veteran population.
