That's another problem with the UFO and other "paranormal" areas, if people don't share what they witnessed then they are helping in the creation (or
perpetuation) of the "club-like" situation that surrounds these events, so people that may be interested in them and that could possibly help in any
way are left out of that knowledge/information.
The important thing is not "what others think" (I couldn't care less for that, as anyone that knows me personally can confirm ), the important is to
share the information.
I agree with ArMaP, people need to share info.
Several years ago my family witnessed "something." We all shared the experience so we really didn't need outside validation but we wondered if our
neighbors had seen the same thing.
We live in the middle of nowhere but our job puts us in contact with outlying neighbors. The hubby and I decided to very discreetly ask our customers
about lights in the night sky the previous week. We made it sound very innocent, possibly military exercises.
We both got a hit. The people were somewhat relieved that others had seen "something" too.
I was transporting a woman and her two teenage daughters. When I mentioned the lights I was watching them in the rear view mirror. They looked at each
other with big eyes and started telling their story.
It seems a younger brother had seen something. He wasn't with us and I would've loved to have talked to him.
He was 8 years old, outside goofing around on the porch. It was 9pm or so. The mom/daughters were inside watching TV when the little boy started
tapping on the window for them to come out and see the "lights." No one paid him any attention. In a bit the tapping turned into banging he was
excited and yelling for everyone to come out now. They thought he was going to play a kid trick on them so they just ignored him.
The mom was just going to call him in when the door flew open, the boy runs straight to his room and slams the door. The mom said he was crying and
she asked him what was wrong but he said he didn't want to talk about it.
They hadn't given it a second thought until I mentioned the lights we saw on the same night as the boy. They kept looking at each other realizing he
wasn't playing tricks on them. It was a twilight zone moment.
I hope they went home and talked to him. Imo my inquiry lent him some much needed credibility with his family. Maybe they'll take the things he says
more seriously. I felt sorry for him.
My hubby talked to a woman who was having a glass of wine on her patio before bed and she saw the lights too. She thought maybe it was the wine and
was quite relieved to hear my hubby's account.
No need to act crazy about it but asking innocent questions never hurts and you might be pleasantly surprised. It could keep someone else from
thinking they're crazy and quite alone in their experience.
