How to use execute in a sentence?

  1. Chika Onuegbu:

    "Courage is not just about bravery. It is also about integrity and persistence to do the right thing against all odds and in the midst of danger. It is not the bravery of a criminal to execute heinous crimes such as suicide bombing, or daredevil armed robbery etc. It is therefore important to point out that the courage we are talking about here is moral courage, which has been described as the essence of leadership." Chika Onuegbu in his 2016 paper titled "The Courage to Stand For Students Union" presented to the Students Union Government of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology.

  2. Scott Surovell:

    I can not think of anything that's more awful, unspeakable and wrong for a government to do than to use its power to execute somebody who didn't commit the crime they're accused of, the problem with capital punishment is that once it's inflicted you can't take it back -- can't be corrected.

  3. Peter Laviolette:

  4. Tommy Paul:

    He played very aggressive tennis and was more unpredictable than players I have faced in the past, he didn't give me much room to execute my game but I got through it by finding different solutions. I executed my game in a different way.

  5. Dustin Johnson:

    My game is in good shape so hopefully tomorrow you will see a lot of what I did today, i just have to go out and execute. I have a game plan and I am going to stick to it.
