Hearing is the one sense that is always working for us. It provides access to sounds
around us that add meaning and pleasure to our lives. Much like the sound track to a
movie creates a richer, more meaningful experience for the viewer, sounds of nature,
applause, laughter, a child’s cry, lectures/sermons, music and other entertainment
is the sound track of our lives. Hearing helps to keep us safe and stay connected to the people and events that bring meaning to our lives.
Ralph Nichols said, “The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and
be understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them.” When hearing
is compromised, listening effectively is difficult, and communication suffers. Mark Ross
made an important point when he said, “When someone in the family has a hearing
loss, the entire family has a hearing problem.” Helen Keller noted that it was her loss of
hearing that disconnected her from other people.
