I haven't thought about this in quite a while - mine was called the "TAG" group - for talented and gifted. I was 6 when it started, back in 1978
in the mid-west part of Virginia. I remember exactly when it all started, actually. It was after a spelling bee, and they had to go up to the 5th
grade level to find a word that stumped me. I remember feeling weird, because I saw the faces of the other kids and the teachers as the spelling bee
went on. It was the very first time I clearly remember getting "The Look", of which many of you are familiar with.
After that, I was tested repeatedly - and then the field trips started, which I liked for the most part. My most memorable one was when I got to go
to D.C. to see the White House. I don't remember much about the others, which is kind of odd because I've got a super good memory in general, but
it could have been that they were just boring. The D.C. trip was special to me because I went without my parents and got to room with 3 other girls
that were from other schools, and that I really felt comfortable with. Looking back, I find it odd that my parents let their then 7 year old daughter
go to D.C. without them, but times were different back then and kids were routinely shipped off to camps and things without a second thought.
I hadn't thought about being tracked for that particular reason, but now I wonder. I still have the letter the school sent to my parents and some of
the test results. Makes me want to go back and take a closer look at who was behind it, because one thing is for sure - I have had one crazy time of
it in this life. The ufo encounters started when I was 12, and have continued off and on throughout my entire life. Up until now I assumed that
"they" were checking on me because of a few reasons - my negative blood type, and/or some genetic traits that I carry (most notably the fact that a
"double uterus" runs in myself and some of the other women in my family). Unfortunately, my son and my niece have had ufo encounters as well. And
by the way - my niece is in a gifted and talented program in school as we speak.
Thanks for bringing this up - any connection feels like it is bringing me closer to finding out what in the world has been going on in my life.
Sometimes it feels like the information is swirling around in my head like pieces of glitter in a snowglobe that's been shaken - I'm just waiting
for enough pieces to settle down so I can see what's really there. It sucks to never know for sure.
