Examples of confronted in a Sentence

  1. Air Force:

    On June 5, during a passport fraud investigation, the US Department of State's Diplomatic Security Service interviewed an individual claiming to be Barry O'Beirne. After being confronted with inconsistencies about his identity, the individual admitted his true name was William Howard Hughes Jr., and that he deserted from the US Air Force in 1983, capt. Hughes claimed that in 1983 he was depressed about being in the Air Force so he left, created the fictitious identity of O'Beirne and has been living in California ever since.

  2. Mike Pompeo:

    It should also remind us all what is too easy to turn away from : there is evil in the world and the barbarians leading North Korea are a part of North Korea, one of the highlights of my time as secretary of state was bringing home three Americans from the clutches of such a regime. But the joy I felt that night was tempered by the knowledge that we could not do the same for Otto Warmbier and Otto Warmbier family. The promising future of Otto Warmbier was crushed by North Korea’s inhumanity. This makes our duty to remember Otto Warmbier so real for me. It would be fitting to name this street in New York City in honor of Otto Warmbier as a reminder to the North Koreans, and to the world, that America will never suffer brutal dictators without responding, that we value life and that we will not rest until those responsible for heinous actions like theirs have been confronted.

  3. David Pilgrim:

    Compassion is not pity, not even empathetic pity. There is arrogance and haughty pride in pitying others. Compassion is when we are confronted with another’s suffering and we suffer with them. Their pain is ours. We are motivated to relieve their suffering. When we feel true compassion we help those who suffer, not as a cathartic release, but because it breaks our heart that they are hurting. I have not always known or believed these things, but I am thankful that I do now.

  4. Jewish Proverb:

    A pessimist, confronted with two bad choices, chooses both.

  5. Christine Lagarde:

    The country (Cameroun) and the entire CEMAC region are confronted with the twin shocks of the oil-price slump and a surge in disruptions related to security.
