Examples of openly in a Sentence

  1. Alex Morse:

    Growing up gay and closeted in a small city like Holyoke, I struggled with accepting my sexuality, and in high school, I had a hard time finding other openly gay students, as I've become more comfortable with Alex Morse and my sexuality, like any young, single, openly gay man, I have had consensual adult relationships, including some with college students.

  2. Marcus Tullius Cicero:

    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.

  3. Vipin Narang:

  4. Jainesh Khandelwal:

  5. Ryan Lizza:
