Examples of screaming in a Sentence

  1. Rachel van Amerongen-Frankfoorder:

    I saw Anne and her sister Margot again in the barracks. Her parents weren't there. The Frank girls were almost unrecognizable since their hair had been cut off. They were much balder then we were; how that could be I don't know. And they were cold, just like the rest of us. (...) The Frank girls were so emaciated. They looked terrible. They had their little squabbles, caused by their illness, because it was clear that they had typhus. You could tell even if you had never had anything to do with that before. Typhus was the hallmark of Bergen-Belsen. They had those hollowed-out faces, skin over bone. They were terribly cold. They had the least desirable places in the barracks, below, near the door, which was constantly opened and closed. You heard them constantly screaming, "Close the door, close the door," and the voices became weaker every day. You could really see both of them dying, as well as others.

  2. Donald Trump:

    I don’t know why they don’t take care of a situation like that, I think it’s embarrassing for the country to allow protesters. You don’t even know what side the protesters are on. In the old days, we used to throw them out. Today, I guess they just keep screaming.

  3. Sue Taulbee:

    It was only a couple of minutes, but it seemed like an hour, i just started screaming and my neighbors heard me and said, 'Sue! Sue! I hear you! We're coming! We're coming!'.

  4. Al Baker:

    We are five aircraft down this summer. This is why we are screaming because it is making a huge impact on my bottom line, we are still at an impasse. We have walked away from our first A320neo because it is more than a certain number of days late, so exercised a walk-away clause.

  5. Hansa Bhargava:

    A sleep terror is not a monster under the bed, although it's so scary for parents that it can seem like that at the time, what happens is that the child wakes up screaming, crying, terrified and may not even recognize you or remember what happened. It's a frightening experience, both for the child and the parent.
