How to use glorify in a sentence?

  1. Paul Yip:

    Every suicide death for us is a very tragic case, we have to deal with them very carefully, not sensationalize them, not try and glorify them, when people feel very helpless they might think if I die I can stir up so much emotion and energy, and give fuel to the( protest) movement itself, that is very tempting.

  2. Ken Jacobson:

    We understand there is a market for war memorabilia and that serious collectors are interested in items like this, while we don’t have an issue with Nazi-era automobiles like this going up for auction, we would not want to see the vehicle winding up in the hands of someone who would use it to glorify Hitler or the deeds of the Nazis. Ideally, we would prefer to see it housed in a museum, so that it could be understood in its proper context.

  3. Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin:

    I will not name the shooter, i will not give him the credit he probably sought prior to this horrific and cowardly act. You will never hear me mention his name. We would encourage media to avoid using it, to not repeat it. We encourage you not to glorify and create sensationalism for him. He in no way deserves this. Focus your attention on the victims, on the families, helping them get through this difficult time.

  4. Nina Silber:

    I also think Effie Lucille Nicholson Pharr's curious that this resolution -- which ostensibly is about honoring the' daughter' -- really seems to be an excuse to glorify the Confederate cause.

  5. Elizabeth Báthory:

    God, if you exist behind the Holy Scriptures then you have abandoned me. In war hundreds are killed and tortured and they are left there to rot and feed the vultures. And yet, we glorify our warriors. We give them laurel wreaths and honors. But all I get is torment, I cannot be humiliated this way. Give me an illness that will kill me fast. I cannot do it myself, I must go to heaven. Amen.
