Personaly, I'd spend the day by the TV, even if I could see the event from my own garden. I'd try and follow every online report too, but fully
imagine the web would crash with the incredible amount of info flying around.
The important thing would be, even with the emotional cushion of a long held belief in the ETH, to try and guage what exactly was happening. I
don't expect that to be easy, or to be able to determine anything from the data forthcoming from the authorities. Most humans fear enforced,
unexpected change, and such an incomprehensible cultural transformation would surely be tempered by this consideration and any specifics would be
released slowly, for safety's sake.
The initial coverage would more than likely be repeating accounts full of emotive imagery, that and "expert" commentary. I fully imagine all the
usual subjects being paraded before the lens; in fact I really expect them to be queueing up to be interviewed. We'd hear lots of professional
estimation as to the meaning of the event, and whilst this'd be based on preliminary information coming from the news stations, it'd be replete with
individual perspective. A lot of careers will be balancing on a knife edge on that day...
In the mean time, I'd try and talk my wife through the unfolding news articles as best I can, and help to allieviate the fears and insecurities that
she will undoubtedly be experiencing. It will be all I can do as, and even though I have immersed myself in UFO lore and supposition, I will be scared
And at that exact moment when we, as a species, discover that we never really were alone, my first thoughts will be firmly, unswervingly with her, and
What transpires in the first few hours that follow this momentous happening will undoubtedly be astonishing, but could never cloud what is truly
important in my life.
