How to use heritage in a sentence?

  1. Kenneth Nail:

    Nikki Haley announced. Since then, at least 60 public Confederate symbols have been removed since the 2015 church shooting, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Most recently, the city of St. Louis, Mo., removed a Confedearte monument -- a 32-foot-tall granite column with a bronze sculpture -- from a park. Complicating the debate for those opposed to these moves is the involvement of hate groups like the KKK. The group is planning a rally for July 8 following a decision by the city council in Charlottesville, Va., to remove a statue of Gen. Lee Park and rename Lee Park. Meanwhile, in April, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu ordered the removal of multiple Confederate statutes. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu received brutal backlash and was forced to have heavy police presence in place when the nighttime removals began. Despite threats that people would boycott New Orleans, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu did not back down. These statues are not just stone and metal, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said in a highly lauded speech after the last Confederate statue had been taken down. They are not just innocent remembrances of a benign history. These monuments purposefully celebrate a fictional, sanitized Confederacy ; ignoring the death, ignoring the enslavement and the terror that it actually stood for. But to others, like Kenneth Nail Nail, it’s not about oppression. To us, it’s not a hate thing. It’s a heritage thing and what we like to do is celebrate everyone's struggles : the blacks, the whites, the north and south.

  2. Ben Cavender:

    The brand — and the heritage that the brand has — it's really impossible to replicate that, somebody can't set up a new venture tomorrow and do what they can do. It's not sort of possible to go back in time and get Mao Zedong to be interested in your drink. It's not possible to sort of be located in the town where they make their products. So I think they have a strong built-in story that allows them to flourish.

  3. Rattanak Te:

    Angkor Wat is the most famous sacred ... temple in Cambodia, where everyone not only tourists but also Cambodians themselves has to pay respect, it definitely upsets me and all Cambodians, because outsiders will think we Cambodian people are careless and do not take good care of this World Heritage (site) by allowing these tourists to do such an unacceptable act.

  4. Stephanie Meeks:

    This year's list is our most diverse ever, and reflects our commitment to recognizing and preserving all the facets of our diverse history, from the LGBTQ history of the Factory in California to the Cuban-American heritage of Miami's Little Havana to the civil rights legacy of the A.G. Gaston Motel in Birmingham, these sites tell American stories that have been overlooked for too long.

  5. Dr. Jose P. Rizal:

    Genius has no country. It blossoms everywhere. Genius is like the light, the air. It is the heritage of all!
