Parents are noticing child warning signs at restaurants. I want to start out by conveying to you that I agree with these two points: First, hearing and seeing a child running willy-nilly around a restaurant can be a bit of a distraction. Second, a screaming kid running up and down an aisle during a flight can hinder one’s attempt at a nap.
OK, now that we have that out of the way, I ask you is your “annoyance” at these situations involving children. Is it any different than when you hear an adult screaming for a waiter or waitress numerous times. Or, when the person next to you on a flight is taking off their shoes and socks and then proceeds to give themselves a foot massage?
PUBLIC BUSINESS SIGNAGE
I bring up the above points for a reason. Recently, I have noticed more and more signs in local restaurants both on the east coast and west coast, warning parents that their children are “on notice” and better behave or else. Where are we going as a culture, when people would find this some how acceptable.
Now, I am a pure Free Market person, so I would be against any governmental regulation not allowing such signs. But, my question really is this, why would people want to associate with a place that appears to look at our children as the enemy?
This opinion may not be popular, but I feel it needs to be put forth. Why are we putting our children on notice? What ever happened to a quiet respectful, one on one with a parent who may be allowing their child to run a muck, that would ask the parent to please rectify the situation? What is next? Signs warning that those who may eat loudly not to come in, or even worse? You get the picture. The slippery slope is indeed starting to get wet. Why would any one find it okay to warn paying customers “that thus and so” will not be tolerated or else?
PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND SIGNAGE
I worked in the restaurant and night club industry for well over ten years, and NEVER in those ten years saw such a sign in place where I worked. If children on a case by case basis got out of hand, than on a case by case basis we spoke to the parents with dignity and tact.
On the east coast this past Summer, I saw signs such as the one I referenced and just shook my head, Out on the West Coast I have seen similar signs as well. Where are we going as a culture where when a family walks into a place of business, they immediately are put ‘under watch’. Would you, who are reading this posting, feel comfortable if the word ‘child’ was replaced with some other word that describes a certain type of person? My guess is you would not, but somehow we think it is okay to “stop and warn” families before they walk into a business.
PARENTS AND CHILDREN ON GOOD AND BAD BEHAVIOR
For the record I have seen 6 year old children behave quite well in places that people 5 times that age have not. If we keep this up, unless a family doesn’t mind a spotlight on them as they walk into a place, what choices will the family have? With no real choices, I guess a family can now be forced to eat at a fast food place. So, now the same people that seem to judge their children’s POTENTIAL behavior, can now judge the parents for going to the only public choice the family may have to feed their children.
Again, I stress, I am a free market believer; the less regulation the better, so let’s do the math shall we? A family of four walks into a restaurant in the Hampton’s. Lets say, they may stay 35 minutes, spend about $80 to a $100 to leave and now that table is available for someone else to use. The other option is this, the one or two people that may complain at being burdened by the threat of loud children, most likely spent less, and stayed longer in the place of business. Thus, net per hour, that place of business made less money, not more.
PUBLIC BUSINESSES THAT GET IT RIGHT
I have seen examples of businesses that have welcomed families and the money they spend. Sandals Resorts seem to have figured out this perfect formula. Yes I agree it may be a bit pricey, but their all inclusive family resorts are a great example of what I mean. A few years ago, we took our family to Turks and Caicos through Sandals, and my children were received as welcomed guests, not a potential noise threat. They wanted my business, earned it, thus received it.
Many other local businesses on both coasts and in our heartland get it right, as well. Children are guests, who have parents who pay money. The child that acts out, is an exception not a rule and the businesses act as such. For myself, as do many parents, I hunt out family friendly or family neutral places, and quite frankly when I can, will pay even more for the knowledge they do not prejudge my kids. I ask you this, how would you like to be pre-judged?

UNIVERSAL DIGEST SUPPORTS DARREN REDMOND’S EFFORTS
Darren Redmond is the Executive Director for a non-profit organization, P.A.I.N. Parents & Addicts In Need has been helping so many families in central California over the years. His message is painfully clear about the fentanyl-laced Xanax tablets that have been taken by unknowing children.
This article points out the dangers of illicit drugs posing as prescribed medications appearing in the marketplace, unbeknownst by their parents.
Please view Darren’s plea in this supported YouTube video that follows.
REMOND WITH FENTANYL WARNING
Darren Redmond contacted Universal Digest about this dire situation. They have received calls at their offices decrying the death from overdoses. Children have been taking fentanyl-laced drugs thinking they are anti-depressant drugs disguised as Xanax.
Here is Darren’s YouTube video:
Mr. Redmond supplied Universal Digest with his narrative that follows:
A short message and a warning. My name is Darren Redmond and I want to remind you that during these times of stress we some times make really bad decisions. We all get frustrated, we all sometimes feel the need to escape the anxiety or depression we may be feeling. But please NEVER use Xanax that you can by off thee street or even from some one you know. If it was not prescribed to you please leave it alone. To many people are dying from Fentanyl related overdoses. The fact is that many Xanax bars are supplemented with Fentanyl.
Written with Universal Digest support: Darren Redmond
Mr. Redmond is a constant contributing author to the Universal Digest network. His frequent book reviews are read by many. Children, as well as, many parents read his posts.

Community Service organizations all around central California have been severely affected from the coronavirus pandemic. Hands in the Community is one of them. Lester Moon, Founder and Executive Director, met with Universal Digest in an exclusive interview to discuss their present hardships. They have not been helped in any way from the present stimulus programs available, to date.
As a proponent of elevating the human condition, we at Universal Digest are committed to doing what can be done to help those in need, where possible. Please read on, dear viewers. Any help that can be given in any way, from volunteer work to financial assistance is most appreciated. Hands in the Community may not be viable to help others within the next few weeks or months. Where and how to help is mentioned later in this article.
COMMUNITY SERVICE SEVERELY HAMPERED
The following is the video interview with Lester Moon. When this author visited the HNC offices in October of 2019, it was abuzz with activity. Every office and computer station was occupied and in use. This visit was shocking. When called for appointment confirmation and directions, Lester answered the phone, personally.
Since we last met, the coronavirus has taken its toll at this non-profit organization. There was only one other person present and it was for an unrelated matter for that which we are writing.
Imagine. From March to April of 2020, funding income dropped by 95%! Of course, this is unsustainable for an organization that helps so many in a tri-county area.
WHAT WILL THE FUTURE BRING?
Succinctly, if Hands in the Community (like so many others) does not increase its funding to continue helping in their Christian ministry to support and assist those in need, they must close the doors. This will add another vacuum of help in the community.
Who is helped? Of the programs to help seniors in need, so affected are the programs for parents and children in their situations. Please note; fully 75% of all funding received is returned to help those in need. That is almost unbelievable in present times. Most non-profits return so much less in funding to those who need help.
As with many other businesses and organizations in the United States have suffered from such a notorious ‘invisible’ attack from outside our shores, all have suffered, severely, financially. Hands in the Community who depends on area businesses, as well as, from private individuals for funding are now beyond struggling. Please. Help however, one may to keep this noble, Christian organization afloat.
REQUEST FOR ASSISTANCE IN CLOSING
In fact, this author must state that in a previous contact with HNC, one of our friends received assistance from them. In the end, she received the help she needed.
And, as mentioned in the video, one project was to build a fence for someone who needed a new one. HNC priced a contractor who could build the fence for $4,500. Of course, this would cripple the budget. So, they went to work to find volunteers and those who could help with materials. In the end, the fence project was completed at a cost of $1,000.
So, in closing, almost no one and no organization in our are communities have not been affected by this heinous situation not of our doing. Let us all pray that we do not go to a ‘new’ normal, but to a ‘regular’ normal.
If anyone who is reading and viewing what is here can render any form of assistance; it will not just be Hands in the Community you are helping? You will be helping hundreds of people in area communities, now and in the future.
HOW MAY ANYONE HELP HNC?
Please call (559) 625-3822 from anywhere in the United States. If calling from outside the US to help, please remember to enter your country code first. Then, enter the US code 01. After that, please enter the telephone number given above.
If one wishes to reach Hands in the Community via their website; it is: https://hnconline.org/. Thank you all for taking the time to read this article. Render assistance where possible. It is understood that at this time, there are so many people and firms in need of help. Thank everyone for taking the time to read this article. Hopefully, there are some who will be able to reach out to this well-known organization.
To be clear and to the point, HNC will help anyone who lives near or below the poverty level. And, this is verified before they help those who request it.
Please, reach out to help Hands in the Community, wherever one may be able to do so. God Bless us all, in these time. We remember, we are not forsaken. For He knows our plight. And, He is returning. Count on it.
Universal Digest is a proponent for community activity. It is part of elevating the human condition where we live. Whether we may help where it is local, regional, or global; we provide it where we can do so.
There is certainly not enough of it to go around for so many.
Evidence is always available to research before you deny whether or not something is real, faked or a hoax.
It’s well known that if you mention the word ‘UFO’, you’re going to receive a lot of unfavorable looks, but plenty of evidence exists. The subject is a real phenomena.
There is an influential amount of evidence, especially in the world of technology where everything you want to know is at the tips of your fingers. Find your legitimate sources and drill-down. Search court house records, police reports, government reports, military reports and find well-founded researchers. On top, there are scientists, physicists, doctors, and most of all, astronauts reporting on the affair continually.
Let’s take a small peak into actual (and very possible) evidence:
The anomaly began in 4,500 BC, with the Sumerian Tablets. The Tablets were written by the earliest civilization located in Southern Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq. According to the Sumerians, the Akkadians and Babylonian’s, there were four deities that the Sumerian’s termed as the Anunnaki, which translates to ‘those who came down from the heavens’ and are described in depth as not human. Many scriptures from the Tablets state that these deities flew in the skies with their winged flying machines between Nibiru and Earth. Their winged crafts are portrayed on relics that still remain all over Iraq and in Egypt. The Egyptian’s called them The Guardian Watchers. Is this evidence of space visitation to earth?
Someone lacking knowledge of the Sumerian Tablets could easily brush off the Tablets as being myth, but the Sumerian Tablets are in reality the first Bible to be written. The Christian Bible is more or less excerpts from the Tablets, written thousands of years later, devoid the shocking values. There are thousands of tablets which have been bought and are displayed at greater Museums around the world.
As well, many used to say that Nibiru didn’t exist, but scientists Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena discovered this Ninth planet in 2016, with its strange elliptical orbit, just as it’s written in the ancient passages.
In 74 BC, the Roman historian, Plutarch, wrote in his journal titled Lucullus: But presently, as they were on the point of joining battle, with no apparent change of weather, but all on a sudden, the sky burst asunder, and a huge, flame-like body was seen to fall between the two armies. In shape, it was most like a wine-jar, and in colour, like molten silver. Both sides were astonished at the sight, and separated. This marvel, as they say, occurred in Phrygia, at a place called Otryae. Was this evidence of a battle in the air?
The first-ever American documented sighting happened in Hull, England, in 1801. The event was captured in the newspaper, The Northampton Mercury. Multiple witnesses described it as a moon-like orb that appeared over the city of Hull, that glowed with a brilliant silver and blue color. Within minutes it formed itself into seven white globes, all illuminating the sky before disappearing.
MOUNT WASHINGTON EXPEDITION
The earliest photo was taken in 1870, from the summit of Mount Washington, New Hampshire, while Amos Clough and Howard Kimball were on a meteorological expedition. It looks like a long cigar floating among the clouds. There’s a copy of the original photo in the New York Public Library.
THE TULLI PAPYRUS PAPERS
There’s also the Tulli Papyrus papers. The written document belonged to Alberto Tulli, director of the Vatican’s Egyptian Museum. Tulli and his brother, a Vatican priest, visited Cairo in 1934, and made a copy of the original translation. Could this be more evidence? It described an event witnessed by Pharoah Thutmose III: In the year 22, in the third month of winter, in the sixth hour of the day, the scribes of the House of Life noticed a circle of fire that was coming from the sky. From the mouth it emitted a silver breath. It had no head. Its body was one rod long and one rod wide. It had no voice. More disks kept appearing, then eventually the whole group of them vanished to the South sky.
Kenneth Arnold was an experienced aviator with more than 9,000 hours of flying time. On June 24th of 1947, he was flying from Chehalis to Yakima, cruising at an altitude of 9,200 feet when he was startled by something bright reflecting off his plane. When he looked towards the light, he saw nine saucer-like crafts splicing through the air in formation. After his report, others recounted their sightings as being evidence he was telling the truth. The following are Kenneth Arnold’s own words:
The following story of what I observed over the Cascade Mountains, as impossible as it may seem, is positively true. I never asked nor wanted any notoriety for just accidentally being in the right spot at the right time to observe what I did. I reported something that I know any pilot would have reported.
On June 24th, Tuesday, 1947, I had finished my work for the Central Air Service at Chehalis, Washington, and at about two o’clock I took off from Chehalis, Washington, airport with the intention of going to Yakima, Wash. My trip was delayed for an hour to search for a large marine transport that supposedly went down near or around the southwest side of Mt. Rainier in the state of Washington and to date has never been found.
Unable to see anything that looked like the lost ship, I made a 360 degree turn to the right and above the little city of Mineral, starting again toward Mt. Rainier. I climbed back up to an altitude of approximately 9,200 feet. The air was so smooth that day that it was a real pleasure flying and, as most pilots do when the air is smooth and they are flying at a higher altitude, I trimmed out my airplane in the direction of Yakima, Washington, which was almost directly east of my position and simply sat in my plane observing the sky and the terrain.
The sky and air was clear as crystal. I hadn’t flown more than two or three minutes on my course when a bright flash reflected on my airplane. It startled me as I thought I was too close to some other aircraft. I looked every place in the sky and couldn’t find where the reflection had come from until I looked to the left and the north of Mt. Rainier where I observed a chain of nine peculiar looking aircraft without tails flying from north to south at approximately 9,500 foot elevation and going, seemingly, in a definite direction of about 170 degrees.
The more I observed these objects the more upset I became, as I am accustomed and familiar with most all objects flying whether I am close to the ground or at higher altitudes. I observed the chain of these objects passing another high snow-covered ridge in between Mt. Rainier and Mt. Adams and as, the first one was passing the south crest of this ridge the last object was entering the northern crest of the ridge. As I was flying in the direction of this particular ridge, I measured it and found it to be approximately five miles so I could safely assume that the chain of these saucer-like objects were at least five miles long. I could quite accurately determine their pathway due to the fact that there were several high peaks that were a little this side of them as well as higher peaks on the other side of their pathway.
A number of news men and experts suggested that I might have been seeing reflections or even a mirage. This I know to be absolutely false, as I observed these objects not only through the glass of my airplane but turned my airplane sideways where I could open my window and observe them with a completely unobstructed view. (Without sun glasses) Even though two minutes seems like a very short time to one on the ground, in the air in two minutes time a pilot can observe a great many things and anything within his sight of vision probably as many as fifty or sixty times.
I look at this whole ordeal as not something funny as some people have made it out to be. To me it is mighty serious and since I evidently did observe something that at least Mr. John Doe on the street corner or Pete Andrews on the ranch has never heard about, is no reason that it does not exist. I have received lots of requests from people who told me to make a lot of wild guesses. I have based what I have written here in this article on positive facts and as far as guessing what it was I observed, it is just as much a mystery to me as it is to the rest of the world.
My pilot’s license is 333487. I fly a Callair airplane; it is a three-place single engine land ship that is designed and manufactured at Afton, Wyoming as an extremely high performance, high altitude airplane that was made for mountain work. The national certificate of my plane is 33355 —– /s/ Kenneth Arnold
As Kenneth’s story leaked out into the public other people stepped forward to say they too, had seen the objects. The most reliable reports were from a flight crew with United Airlines, which claimed seeing nine disk-like objects over Idaho. It seems the evidence is apparent, here.
THE ROSWELL INCIDENT
The most notorious event happened in 1947. Early July, 1947, Rancher Mack Brazel rode his horse a distance away to check on his farm animals after a fierce storm from the night before. Half way down the trail he began to notice unusual pieces of debris scattered over a large area and then caught glimpse of a fresh trench gouged into the ground approximately a hundred feet long. Brazel said he was confused on what occurred, and by the odd looking metal he was seeing. Feeling anxious all of a sudden, he picked up a few pieces to take back with him and didn’t check out the rest of the scene. On his return he showed his neighbors the pieces of foil-like metal; they were as clueless as he was.
The following day, Brazel drove to Roswell and reported the incident. The report was forwarded to Major Jesse Marcel, an intelligence officer stationed at the local Army Air Field. The debris site was immediately closed off and a heap of military trucks drove in for several days while the wreckage was cleared. Military personnel would not allow anyone other than government officials on the site nor give out information.
According to Marcel, the debris field was close to half a mile long and a few hundred feet wide. The strange metal parts intrigued him. They were weightless. He felt the need to see if it would burn. He held a cigarette lighter to one piece, lit it, and it wouldn’t burn or even heat up. As well as the metal debris there was what he described as an “I” beam that was three-eights inch by one quarter inch that would neither bend nor break, and had indecipherable symbols on it. Quoted by Marcel, ‘I didn’t know what we were picking up. I still don’t know what it was. It was clearly not part of an aircraft that we know of and not part of any weather balloon. I’ve seen rockets. It wasn’t a rocket.’
About the same time, Glenn Dennis, a mortician working in Roswell, at Ballard Funeral Home, received an interesting call from the RAAF morgue. The base’s mortuary officer was trying to obtain four small sealed coffins. The officer also asked Dennis if he knew how to preserve bodies that had been exposed to outside elements for a few days. He felt the phone call to be out of the norm but moved on to deliver the small coffins to the military hospital. On his drive there he wondered if a few kids had somehow been killed.
Glenn Dennis was a regular visitor at the hospital and usually recognized everyone there, but not on this day. On top, there were more soldiers on duty. As he tried entering he was stopped and told to unload the coffins then leave. Dennis claims it was one of the strangest days he’d had and wanted to know what had happened, so the next day, he called a friend who worked at the hospital as a nurse. He made contact with her and she said she’d meet him later for lunch. Per Dennis, he knew something was wrong as soon as he saw her. She seemed distant and nervous. She told him upfront she couldn’t say much, she was now under orders, but she said she saw bodies discovered from a wreck and they were not humans.
On July 8th, The Roswell Daily Record published a front page article with the headline ‘RAAF Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch in Roswell Region’ and the two radio stations received a press release by the Associates Press. The wire went as follows: ‘The Army Air Forces here today announced a flying disk had been found in Roswell.’ The news was running rampant about the evidence.
In a matter of hours after all the news reports, Major Charles A. Cashon came onto the scene with a weather balloon as evidence in hand, spread it out on the floor and told Marcel to hold it up for a photo, which is the now-famous picture of Marcel with the weather balloon. According to Brig. General Thomas DuBose, this was the new story to give to the public and that was it. Later that evening, the original press releases were rescinded and an officer from the base retrieved all previous story copies; newspapers and radio wires. The next day, a second release was issued stating that the 509th Bomb Group had mistakenly identified a weather balloon as wreckage of a flying saucer. This was all happening while the wreckage was being crated and shipped to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, along with four bodies.
For decades, the Roswell incident was kept sealed but, like a bad penny, the case kept turning up. People involved couldn’t keep silent forever and you’d hear their testimonies. In the late 1990’s, the account hit the main media outlets again with witnesses sharing their experiences among physicists and researchers proving other sightings; they were not weather balloons at all. The evidence was more flying disks. Furthermore, a retired Air Force Lieutenant came out of the shadows when he was able to and exposed his position on the event.
Air Force Lt. Col. Richard French has an incredible history; he joined the Oregon National Guard shortly after his 17th birthday. He then gained his commission in the U.S. Air Force, where he went on to become a fighter aircraft pilot. He served in Korea, Vietnam, Laos and the Cuban Missile Crisis. He held numerous college degrees, including a PhD in astrophysics and another in philosophy. He had been awarded many decorations; the Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal and two Purple Hearts. He served as commander at Nellis Air Force Base and Luke Air force Base.
In 2013, Lt. Col Richard French gave an exclusive interview and declared there were actually two crashes. As reported by French, one ufo was shot down by our Air Force. The shot, what was effectively an electronic pulse-type, and disabled it. That’s why it crashed. The second one crashed from an unknown reason. French recited, ‘I’m one of the authors of Project Blue Book and Special Investigations. One of the duties I had was to debunk UFO events. In other words, if someone had a sighting, I and another agent would try to come up with some logical explanation for the aerial appearance. We’d give our analysis and tried to debunk it by saying it was swamp fog or that the thing was actually hanging on wires, or whatever. These orders came through channels all the way to the presidential level. You couldn’t question them. They told us if there were creatures coming to our planet that we could not explain, it basically would destroy religions, and the fact that our military’s helpless against them would destroy the reputation of the military, you’re talking about our national defense. The cover up is still going on today. There’s no question about it.’
UFO’S AT THE WHITE HOUSE
July 19, 1952, at 11:40 PM, Air Traffic Control at Washington National Airport in Washington D.C.
Ed Nugent, the Air Traffic Controller on duty observed seven blips on his radar screen and knew that no aircraft were in the area. Nugent immediately called Harry Barnes, Supervisor of Air Control to review what their radar was picking up. Barnes called upon Control Tower and confirmed the tower was also receiving the signals, as well as Andrews Air Force Base. Five Air Traffic Controllers watched closely as two of the blips hovered over the White House.
During this period, airline captain, S.C. Pierman was sitting on the tarmac in the cockpit of his DC-4 at National Airport and saw six wingless objects flying that he could not identify. He reported the account to Harry Barnes, who was already aware of the situation. The unknown crafts disappeared and reappeared until 5:30 AM. There ended up being 200+ witnesses to the event and three civilians captured the event with their camera.
The next day, the Washington Post released an article titled, ‘Saucer Outruns Jet, Pilot Reveals. The UFO hovered 1,700 feet above the White House lawn.’ The government nor military have not released information to this day, nor denied the incident.
December 26, 1980, Air Force Bases Woodbridge and Bentwaters, Suffolk, England. U.S. personnel, John Burroughs, Jim Penniston and Sgt. Adrian Bustinza witnessed Britain’s most famous encounter up close and personal.
Reports of strange lights over Rendlesham Forest started buzzing into the base early that morning. Burroughs, Penniston and Bustinza were ordered to do a ground search of the area. They saw lights of blue, red, orange and white as soon as they arrived but could not tell where or what the lights were coming from. They walked through the forest a ways, got to a fence, climbed over, then were in an opening. Approximately 200 yards away they spotted an opaque black craft, covered in hieroglyphic characters. It illuminated the entire pine forest with a white light, a red pulsing light on top and blue moving lights on the bottom. They estimated it to be three meters tall and three meters wide at the base. No landing gear could be seen. They walked up to it; it was smooth, like black glass. Within several minutes the craft made a vibrating noise, rose up, tilted and took off into the sky so fast that it was completely out of sight within two seconds.
Later, when daylight came to, indentations could be seen on the forest floor accompanied by damage to the trees. High levels of radiation was also present.
Quoted by Sgt. James Penniston, in 2005, ‘What I once believed is no more, and what I’ve witnessed, defies all that I have ever imagined. I am truly in awe over the whole incident, and no one can fully understand the magnitude of such an event unless you were there.’
ZIMBABWE SCHOOL ENCOUNTER
On the morning of September 16, 1994, sixty-two children at the Ariel School in Ruwa, ran into their school house screaming. They alerted their teachers they had just seen a large round object land from the sky near the playground and several children saw two small creatures. The teacher’s were confounded because each student wore panic.
The reports taken from the students as a whole were truly similar, and the consensus was that a round silver object did land about 100 meters from the edge of the school field where the children stood. Many of the pupils stopped what they were doing from curiosity and watched what landed. One young girl remarked, ‘I felt scared because I’ve never seen such a person like that.” Another student claimed, ‘They were kind of, just looking at us. They were kind of astonished at what we were.’
The small creatures were described of having large oval-shaped eyes wearing tight shiny black clothing.
A few days after the events, a BBC reporter visited the school to document the case. The students were interviewed regarding their personal experiences by Harvard Professor of Psychiatry, John Mack. Mack had the children draw pictures of what they saw. The drawings produced approximately 40 pictures, all of them strikingly the same in content and appearance; containing a saucer type craft, trees and small child-sized men with large oval black eyes.
After having interviewed all of the students, Mack reached the conclusion that the children exhibited no signs of behavioral problems and ruled out the possibility that their descriptions were the result of a mass delusion. According to Mack, ‘They experienced a very powerful encounter and they’re left with the rather disturbing fact that this seems to be what it is. And it seems to have no other psychiatric explanation.’
Twenty years later, the former students stand by their same story. Can we not state that visual observation from many witnesses is evidence?
THE PHOENIX LIGHTS
March 13, 1997, something incredible happened over Phoenix Arizona, which is now titled the Phoenix Lights. It was witnessed by thousands of people, caught on camera and has been made available to everyone around the globe, thanks to the Internet. Are not the numerous videos and pictures evidence?
Luke Air Force Base, the media outlets, the National UFO Reporting Center, the Governor’s office and the police station began receiving nonstop reports of something extremely large, the size of a football field, moving slowly in the sky. Some people reported it as a gigantic boomerang with lights underneath it. Three different witnesses from three different areas caught the account on video.
Arizona’s Governor, Fife Symington, was not able to be candid until his term ended. In 2007, he came forward and told the public he too had witnessed the phenomena. He described it as a craft of unknown origin. He’s quoted in the Daily Courier saying, ‘I’m a pilot and know just about every machine that flies. That one was bigger than anything that I’ve ever seen. Other people saw it, responsible people. I don’t know why people would ridicule it. It was enormous. Who knows where it came from. It was dramatic; inexplicable. Geometric outline, a constant shape. It wasn’t from here.’
Symington also noted that he requested information from Luke Air Force Base, the National Guard and the head of the Arizona Department of Safety, but none of the officials had an answer for what had happened, and they were as perplexed as everyone else. Such determinations can be noted as further evidence, indeed?
ASTRONAUTS SPEAKING OUT
Major Gordon Cooper, one of the last astronauts to fly in space, witnessed a UFO. Per Cooper, ‘For many years I lived with a secret. I can now reveal it. Most astronauts are reluctant to discuss the subject. Authorities are afraid because of the god, religious effects it would have on millions of people, and because they are so much more advanced than we are. We have to avoid panic. But the truth is, they’re here.’
Astronaut Donald Slayton saw a UFO in 1951. Donald said he tracked it for a little ways, then it turned a 45 degree angle and flat disappeared. ‘It accelerated so fast, it flat out disappeared.’
Major Robert White witnessed a forty foot, gray disc while flying his X-15. He was only thirty feet away from it.
NASA Pilot Joseph Walker filmed six metallic gray UFO’s during a flight in 1962. As quoted by Walker, ‘The military took the reel and it’s never been seen by the public.’
Other astronauts that have come forward are: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Eugene Cernan, Ed White, James McDivitt, James Lovell, Frank Borman, Maurice Chatelain, Scott Carpenter and Edgar Mitchell. Certainly, such professionals’ observations are evidence, as well?
Billionaire entrepreneur, Robert Bigelow, who is currently working with NASA, was quoted on CBS’s 60 Minutes, in May of 2017, saying he was ‘absolutely convinced’ that aliens exist and are currently here. To him, the evidence is overwhelming.
According to Bigelow, ‘There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence. I spent millions and millions… I probably spent more as an individual than anybody else in the United State has ever spent on this subject.’ When Bigelow was asked whether he worried about what people thought, he simply replied, ‘I don’t give a damn. It doesn’t matter what other people think because it doesn’t change the facts. They’re already here. They’re right under your noses.’
SO, IF THEY’RE HERE – WHERE ARE THEY?
Scientist suggest, they look a lot like us. If that’s true, then maybe that’s what Robert Bigelow means when he announced, ‘They’re right under your noses.’
The problem with imagining a life form on a different planet is that unfortunately we’ve only got one example to go by – our own. So, we tend to imagine something unworldly like the grey humanoid or insect-like creature, but there’s no guarantee that would be accurate. Instead, studies of evolutionary theory finds that it would be subject to the same processes and mechanisms that helped bring us about – leading to the conclusion they might actually look a lot like us. At least, some of them. That means it’s possible they are among us. That’s a hard fact to sink in. Where is more evidence? According to rumors that have circled around for the last decade or two, these beings that look much like we do have been working along with our highest government officials. Try to digest that.
