“Can you help me?” I’ll never forget…

 

Can you help me? No one will listen.

Can you help me? I can’t change the channel on my TV.

Can you help me? I can’t pick up my coffee cup.

Can you help me? I’m not sure where I am. 

Can you help me? I’m not sure where I’m supposed to be. 

Can you help me? I need to find my way back. 

Can you help me? I can’t find my loved one. 

Can you help me? I’m lonely. 

Can you help me? I’m trapped. 

Can you help me? No one seems to see me. 

Can you help me? I’m hurting. 

 

Your mind won’t stop wondering. You’ll never forget the feeling. You never forget the chill that crawls up your spine or the strange mix of excitement and deep sadness that sweeps over you when you hear it. It is weeks later. You’re long gone, but now deep in analysis. You replay it over and over. Maybe you step away from your work for just a bit… to process what you just heard. Will you stay up all night wondering what they needed? Are they waiting for you to come back? Are you able to do anything about it?  And… will it change your attitude for the next investigation?

 

One never forgets the first time they hear a spirit ask… 

“Can you help me?”

 

I know I won’t.
