Definition: to prepare (oneself) for action

Sentence example: In 2015, Pope Francis has made momentous international commitments to curb greenhouse gases and gird communities, particularly the poorest, against climate-related hazards.

The Power Memory Strategy:

  • Link gird to girdle.
  • Girdle is the buttock, stomach, thigh and torso-slimming garment worn by just about every woman until the 1960s and was cleverly advertised using all types of tactics including before & after photographs and peer pressure. Women wear the girdle to look presentable/prepared for important events.
