How to use relate in a sentence?

  1. Zarqa Nawaz:

    People have said to me that the characters are universal and can be found in a church, synagogue or temple. Maybe it is because people can relate to seeing these characters that helps.

  2. Murray Snow:

    I want all records that in any way relate.

  3. President Barack Obama:

    I can relate to this program, does well in the classroom. Won twice in the past four years. Know what it's like for people to oppose you no matter what you try to do. When I flip on ESPN and I see a documentary about how people still 'hate' Christian Laettner -- a guy who played for Duke 23 years ago. I realize, well, maybe I don't have it so bad. Or I think this is going to be a long 23 years.

  4. Paul. F. Meekin:

    Since I've been in the education business - often the only way to relate to teachers, parents & children - are with words of wisdom. If I could know all the wise books by heart - I would stand a chance at being a better Headmaster. Also for when it comes to my family & friends - that knowledge would always be there to give inspiration & encouragement & tell me who can't use that with their relatives!

  5. Shannon Farrell:

    She has swabbed countless people at the clinic since, wondering if shes exposing herself to the virus. Like many of her colleagues working in the COVID-19 world, she takes every possible precaution ; she showers at work after her shift, trying to ensure that she doesnt expose her parents to anything. Her work clothes go immediately into the washing machine. I just feel like this is such an unknown, said Koplin, who plans to return to bobsled next fall assuming bobsled season happens. Theres so many uncertainties and Im like, I dont want to take any chances in the sense that Im dragging this super-contagious virus around my house. Bren Jensen can relate. Shes a COVID-19 survivor. Being a survivor is her specialty. She lost a leg in a lawn-mower accident as a child and went on to represent the U.S. in the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Paralympics. She caught the virus, and a doctor that she shares an office with tested positive soon afterward. Theres no way of knowing how Bren Jensen got it or if she transmitted it to anyone else, but she was racked by guilt anyway. Ill be the first to admit that I was very skeptical, Bren Jensen said. Those first couple of weeks, I was even telling patients, Theres really not much to be concerned about unless you have underlying health issues or chronic lung disease. And then I came down with it and I realized how serious it was, because Im completely healthy and it took me down. She stayed down for three weeks, then returned to work. Her office has gone to whats called virtual visits, where patients are being seen remotely. Thats been a lifesaver just to keep everybody else calm, Bren Jensen said. Calmness is something Shannon Farrell has not found easily. Last week, she and another nurse held a mans hand as Shannon Farrell died, separated from Shannon Farrell family because of the threat of the virus. Easter dinner with her own family a couple days later was held outside, in a Wendys parking lot, social distancing practiced as they stood around their cars. The strangeness has been impossibly hard for Shannon Farrell to process. She knew as a high school junior, seven years ago, that this was her calling. But this may be beyond any worst-case scenario she envisioned. I helped to take care of my grandmother when she was sick with leukemia, and I remember liking that feeling of being helpful and making her feel more comfortable.
