Over the coming generations I think we will see a bit of a difference in the way people react. I often wonder if because the first person people tell
don't take much notice, they forget about trying a third and fourth - because every week it seems more people open up to the "bigger posibilities" of
the mysteries of the universe.
I have been quite surprised about the amount of people that either randomly or through 'sci fi' conversations admit to seeing things they can't
explain. And I think now with younger generations this is starting to become a more accepted portion of reality. My dad for example, wouldn't give it
a second thought, but the younger the people I would ask get, the more open to the idea they are.
People who want to come forward should take their own comfortable steps to become at ease talking about it. For example, there is no reason to post it
on a forum full of a world of people you've never met to begin with, discuss it with friends. Perhaps the anonomous nature of a forum is ideal for
some, and maybe so if close friends are turning a bit of a blind eye. But don't be afraid to talk about it, especially not as the future happens - it
is becoming more acceptable to question reality!!
S&F, and thanks for the interesting case reports people have mentioned. One thing I think is important is for people to understand the frequency. Yes,
an oberservation CAN seem personal in the short term, ie you and your kid saw it, or just you - but do a little research, have a little chat, and
you'll probably find a hundred people can relate to what you saw down to the finest of details. I see that all the time here, people describe what
I've seen myself, so I don't consider myself to be a looney in the outside world when I talk about it.
Judge character before you tell people - would you tell someone who probably never opens up about anything, someone you've never heard question the
bigger picture? Or would you tell that guy you know enjoys watching Dr Who or X Files? Don't be surprised if you draw blanks from people who, in their
waking life, probably never give the existence of aliens a second thought, some people are very set in stone with their beliefs. It's kind of a shame
because it can be important for UFO witnesses to try and explain to people they know won't believe them - to believe them. But you can't always win I
Above all else, nowadays more people find that kind of "experience" interesting
- why? I presume because it's just not something we can all
have, yet in these materialistic times plenty of people want everything. They want the news as it happens, they want to be able to connect to their
friends instantly and quickly, and update all the crap they've been up to. Maybe in the coming decades people who have not experienced
outnumbered. If not, future generations will certainly be more inquisitive and I'm positive that will be in a truthful, genuinly interested manner.
Those people we find barriers & roadblocks with, ie those who call hoax, remember many of them will have an experience on some level in the future.
Anyhoo yeah don't be afraid, tell us your UFO tale
More people than not probably want to hear about it, especially here!
