I am not the sort of person to dwell on my past, or over things that I cannot change. My personality is one that tackles trouble or issues head on,
figure out a solution and move forward. I do not let my emotions get the better of me (most of the time). Needless to say, not much gets me worked up.
That's not to say that I do not get passionate about things I feel strongly about.
That being said, I would like to get something off my chest. This is something I have never told anyone. Not even those very close to me. I know that
my family and friends would love me regardless, but they already give me lots of grief over my opinions on government, politics and other alternative
issues. Unfortunately most of them are not open to discussions such as we have here on ATS. So if I dropped something like this on them I would
probably end up forcibly attending a visit to a shrink.
This is how I remember it:
When I was 13 years old, I lived with my aunt in a small town in the Midwest. It was a quiet place, not much excitement except for school events and
the occasional party that got out of hand. One night my Aunt left with my little cousin to go to a girl scout banquet. My younger brother was spending
the weekend at my Mother's house in a different town, but not far away. So I was home alone. Even though I was involved in numerous sports, I
developed a taste for cigarettes. So I stepped out the back door of the attached garage to have a smoke behind the shed. (My usual hiding place) The
backyard is only about 50ft wide with privacy fences on each side, and 40ft deep with a chain-link fence enclosing it. Beyond the fence was tall
prairie grass and a corn field that ran quite a ways back from there.
While I was smoking, I remember looking up to the sky to look around. I have always been curious about the great unknown of space (not necessarily
UFO's) and the lack of light pollution usually allowed for a bright, clear view. That's when things changed a bit. Up over the corn and grass, a
fricken UFO came overhead. It wasn't just a flashy, quick drive-by like most encounters. This thing couldn't have been more than 20ft above the
tallest part of the house. It came from the south, slowly and gave off a light buzzing sound like an electrical device or something similar. It seemed
to be triangular, but not like the videos or recent sightings. The edges were thick and rounded at the front point and edges. The sides were long,
making me think it was not even close to a true triangle shape. There was one large round light under the front point, but it did not light-up
brightly. It was more like a glow-in-the-dark green light that would not be visible unless it was very dark. For some reason I remember being very
calm. I watched it go over the house, extinguished my smoke and I went inside the house. I never mentioned it to anyone.
The reason I bring it up now is because it has been bothering me a lot lately. Since around that time, I cannot remember any dreams, if I dream at
all, except for this encounter. It plays over and over but my reaction changes each time to the site of this massive craft. One time I will just walk
inside, another I will go crazy and run around the yard acting a fool.
This leads me to the heart of the matter. Was it just a dream? I know that no one person can tell me the truth but I have to ask. I always thought it
was a dream and that I just have a weird imagination, but I specifically remember this happening. I remember the warm spring air and the smell of dank
moisture that came off of the prairie grass.
Why is this the only dream I have or remember? Was it a dream?
I asked my cousin if she did go to such a banquet, and confirmed it. She even showed me the award she received at the banquet. My Aunt still lives in
the same house and when I go there I feel strange. The memory is quite strong. Another strange but possibly irrelevant fact is that it was one year to
the day that I moved to my Father's house in a different state.
Take it easy on me ATS, this is hard for me. But I hope you may be able to shed some light on a weird situation.
