The screams of desperation are numerous and they can be heard nearly everywhere;They are the voice and tears of pain;The screamer's plea for help, even when from a single person, may seem to be overwhelming to the person who cares;For it may be the scream of an abandoned child,a soldier being tortured by his enemies,a woman fleeing from a serial killer who is determined to destroy her,a lonely person in a crowd who feels alone,a fear-stricken person sensing imminent danger that may be real or imaginary.These screamers have one thing in common: they are crying out for help - for someone to rescue them.
Sometimes other people hear their screams and respond humanely; sometimes others ignore them; Sometimes their screams are out of quiet desperation and are too quiet for others to hear. But most of the times their screams are loud and sound as if they are from hysterical people. Yet, "the loudest scream" comes from those who cry out for love, those who can scream in rhythmic cadence, often reaching a crescendo pitch that is so high that it goes off the sound chart page. What are their lyrics? Two words. They scream, "Love me! Love me! Love me!" That's all they ask, just love me. The loudest scream is from the soulbroken person who experiences the most excruciating and severest pain of all screamers; Even sometimes when his screams seems faint to others, they are not; they are always very loud to the screamer whose soul is broken. It is somewhat like unto Jesus crying out in a loud voice while on the cross, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" - which means, "my God, why have you forsaken me?"
Out of desperation the loudest screamer ask, seemingly demandingly, "love me!" He may say, "love me or I-am-out-of-here," and even add, before I am destructive to others and myself." This may mean that he will commit suicide suddenly or by a somewhat prolonged process that involves the use of drugs, overeating, or some other life abusive substances to affect his peremature demise;
How tragic it is that "the loudest scream" very often falls on death ears, or, if heard, be ignored, perhaps by someone who do not have empathy for hurting people, or, who is just too proud to help a broken human being. Yet, those who refuse to help people in desperation may themselves become screamers and it is because they too never learned to love. There comes a time in the life of a person when he needs help and out of desperation he may scream loudly for someone to help him. The ultimate cure for a screamer is to find someone to love; the ultimate prevention for the person who turns a deaf ear to a screamer and is himself in danger of becoming a streamer is to love himself.Love, although mysterious, is efficacious and reality-based; it connects the temporal and eternity. ------------------------------------------------ Send correspondence to: Uriah J.
