How to use ordeal in a sentence?

  1. Josh Hawley:

    The House Investigative Committee's Report contains shocking, substantial, and corroborated evidence of wrongdoing by Governor Governor Greitens, the conduct the report details is certainly impeachable, in my judgment, and Missouri House is well within Missouri House rights to proceed on that front. But the people of Missouri should not be put through that ordeal. Governor Greitens should resign immediately.

  2. Brian Nunamaker:

    As a parent, you feel extremely helpless to be unable to assist the most important person in the world during such a time of emergency, worst case scenarios run through your head while you are hoping for the best. The eternity of waiting for help to arrive was surprisingly non-existent in this situation. I was surprised at how quickly help had arrived in the form of a fire truck. When the firefighters arrived on the scene, Nunamaker’s daughter was limp but she was still breathing and had a pulse. His daughter arrived at the hospital and started to have another seizure, but it stopped momentarily. Nunamaker said his daughter was later transferred to VCU and was later discharged. Nunamaker told Fox 5 DC he was hoping to put the ordeal behind him, but couldn’t when he heard the news of Kelley and Bloom’s suspension. My wife and I feel terrible for the fallout that has happened to these two gentlemen, Nunamaker said in a statement to Fox 5 DC. They simply had the best interests for our daughter's care in mind.

  3. Eric Greitens:

    This ordeal has been designed to cause an incredible amount of strain on my family, millions of dollars of mounting legal bills, endless personal attacks designed to cause maximum damage to family and friends. Legal harassment of colleagues, friends and campaign workers and it's clear that for the forces that oppose us, there is no end in sight. I can not allow those forces to continue to cause pain and difficulty to the people that I love.

  4. Ned Pillersdorf:

    With his capture, I’m hoping we can get this ordeal behind us, put him in prison where he belongs and start to undo the damage he has done to his former clients.

  5. Dallas Police Chief David Brown:

    I believe we're blessed that our officers survived this ordeal, we literally dodged a bullet.
