How to use stand in a sentence?

  1. Linda Cardellini:

  2. Prime Minister Ardern:

    After forty years, on behalf of today's government, the time has come to apologize for the actions of an airline then in full state ownership; which ultimately caused the loss of the aircraft and the loss of those you loved, the pilots were not responsible for this tragedy, and I stand here today to state that again.

  3. Kamala Harris:

    Our answer is not going to simply be how we felt, but what we did, did we sign people up to vote ? Did we fight against voter suppression ? Did we knock on doors ? Did we pay attention to who's elected ? ... Did we stand up for justice ? Did we fight for folks and for equality, and not tire ?

  5. Adam Rippon:

    I don’t think he has a real concept of reality, to stand by some of the things that Donald Trump has said and for Mike Pence to say he’s a devout Christian man is completely contradictory.If he’s okay with what’s being said about people and Americans and foreigners and about different countries that are being called ‘s***holes,’I think he should really go to church.
