How to use detached in a sentence?

  1. Savannah Guthrie:

    Remember when my retina was detached because Charley threw the train at my eye ? well, guys it's not over.

  2. Pete Hegseth:

    While this shameful act may be an isolated incident, what’s not isolated are the almost daily reports that feed the perception that VA leadership are detached from the urgent challenges facing returning veterans, but it’s even more troubling that Ms. Paul’s shockingly poor judgment did not merit immediate firing.

    The general public, when they hear greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, their eyes glaze over, it feels so big and detached from their lives.

But food is one of those ways to tell this story in a way people can really relate to -- and, ultimately, in a way people can incorporate, and become an actor in the solution over time.
