How to use barbed in a sentence?

  1. Paul Hokemeyer:

    Regardless of where you stood on Trump, his victory disrupted the status quo, brought anger out of the shadows and barbed human relations.

  2. Donald Trump:

    We need Democrat votes to have a wall, now, if we don't get it, will I get it done another way ? I might get it done another way. There are other potential ways that I can do it. You saw what we did with the military, with the barbed wire and the fencing, and various other things.

  3. Hannah Pik-Goslar:

She was in rags. I saw her emaciated, sunken face in the darkness. Her eyes were very large. We cried and cried, for now there was only the barbed wire between us, nothing more. And no longer any difference in our fates.

The art was escape from the brutal reality of the camp to another, better world.
