How to use scar in a sentence?

  1. John Kennedy, Autobiography of malcolm x:

    Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of Negroes on our shore, the scar of our racial hatred had already disfigured colonial society. From the sixteenth century forward, blood flowed in battles over racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it. Our children are still taught to respect the violence which reduced a red-skinned people of an earlier culture into a few fragmented groups herded into impoverished reservations.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Scars are neither something one should feel embarrassed about, nor something one should try to hide. Scars are beautiful, in my view, because they show what you've been through, and how you've come out of that challenging phase of life. Never forget that your every scar represents your courage, determination strength and endurance, and that's what makes the scars so beautiful.

  3. Bryan Ma:

    Those retailers and consumers, their confidence is shaken. Now there's second guessing, there are question marks around Huawei, is( a US export ban) going to become Google Maps again ? the damage to Huawei, the scar, is still there.

  4. De Wit:

    I would say its probably more, if you look at older manatees, they all bear the scars from being hit by boats. Ironically, we also base research on thatand we identify individuals by the scar patterns. I would say all manatees get hit by boats within their first few years of life.

  5. Jerry Deener:

    We knew very little because he wouldn't talk about it, he has a very big scar on his right side where he was hit.
