This week's word in the news: HARROWING

DEFINITION:

FOUND IN THE NEWS:
To Samuel, the journey meant trading a hopeless situation at home for potential security and prosperity in the United States — but first he needed to survive the trip north, dodging police and criminals, and a harrowing ride on top of a freight train for hundreds of miles.
Walter Cronkite School of Journalism / The Arizona Republic -- 07/21/2014
