How to use gesture in a sentence?

  1. Elliot Timms:

    The veteran, who served two tours in Afghanistan, has been running 15 miles almost every single day, regardless of the weather. Though he usually makes his daily runs in Kansas City, he has also carried out his patriotic runs in Washington, D.C. three times. Timms said he hopes his display of patriotism will overshadow the negativity from other American citizens. I'm countering voices of negativity and defeatism in our country with a more uplifting, proud, and powerful gesture of patriotism, because those negative voices don't speak for all of America, he said. He added: When people see me running across the landscape with the American flag, perhaps it will cause them to pause for a moment and consider the meaning, value and importance of that flag and our country represents.

  2. Ben Emmerson:

    It was a crass and clumsy gesture from an increasingly isolated tin pot despot, a morally deranged authoritarian who was at that very moment clinging desperately onto political power in the face of international sanctions and a rising chorus of international condemnation, after years of negotiation and appeasement, the world has lost its patience now with Mr Putin's judo politics and his cringing hard-man photo opportunities.

  3. Caroline Rose:

    The regime has been leveraging its agency over the captagon trade, signaling to states considering normalization that they could reduce captagon trafficking as a goodwill gesture.

  4. Jonathan Friedman:

    It is deeply disturbing to see a group of students engaged in this kind of conduct, this symbolic gesture aimed not just to reject or refute ideas but to obliterate the very paper on which they were written... It behooves the university to educate its students about why book burning is so inimical to open discourse and free expression.

  5. Tristain Shury:

    You should never stop being kind, even if your gesture turns out to be for the wrong people. A good deed is good, it is the thought that counts.
