I am going to do something I once said I would NEVER do. Anonymity and the current state of things are telling me it's time. I will tell this without
embellishment and I will leave out feelings and emotions as they are not relevant. The following took place 30 years ago, it is one of the few moments
in my life that I recall as if it were yesterday. My wife of 25 years is the only person I have ever told this to, only her and the two family members
present when I got home that day know about it. None of us speak about it.
It was about 2am, warm and pleasant. I was walking home from a friends house, I was not under the influence of any intoxicant and there was nothing
unusual about the evening. Walking along I came under the glow of what I thought was a street light, for a moment I paused as it seemed awful bright.
I looked up, shaded my eyes with my hand and kept moving. As I walked I became aware the the light was moving with me, a single beam of light very
bright and circular in shape. There was absolutely no sound but the wind. I ran forward about ten steps and the light stayed right on top of me, I
walked backward and it followed still. I began to run forward again and....
That was it. The next memory I have is two family members kneeling in front of me, I am sitting on the kitchen floor and I have no idea how I got
there. It is now 6am, they tell me I came in and they heard a thump as I hit the floor. The soles of both my shoes have been peeled away from the
uppers and according to them I am white as a ghost with a wild look in my eyes. I tell them what I remember, we all know what happened, we all agree
to say nothing.
