How to use forget in a sentence?

  1. Vincent Grashaw:

    I felt the material was important because it was less about school shootings and more about the power of friendship at that age, the devastating real struggles of youth, struggles we as adults tend to forget or make light of, which honestly can just make the issues with kids worse, instead of validating very real feelings. Their reality is their reality and some just aren't equipped to deal with the elevated emotions they experience at such a young age.

  2. Clarence Rauch Wise:

    The old plaques were going to be put into a museum so that people will not forget our past.

  4. Diana, Princess of Wales:

    So many people supported me through my public life and I will never forget them.

  5. Klaus Friedrich:
