I prefer to let them make up their own minds than to present a biased opinion of either "good aliens" or "bad aliens". However, since Close Encounters of the Third kind was not based on reality and Fire In the Sky presented more fantasy than the true story it was based on, I have supplemented my children's educations with material from my own investigations, the investigations of others and take them with me to UFO conferences, meetings and lectures. They have seen the good, the bad and the ugly and are growing up informed citizens capable of drawing their own conclusions and suppositions without being told what to believe or not to believe. I do not want my children to "see something good out of all of this", I want them to see the _reality_ of the situation. I do not want my children growing up as I did believing all kinds of BS as presented by the government, the entertainment industry and the religious institutions by which we are so heavily influenced. I teach my children to enjoy fantasy and reality but above all, to know the difference between the two. My daughters can now indicate, point by point, most of the subliminal messages aimed at every level of the human psyche ejected by commercials, news reports and political campaigns. They can read between the lies in history books, sit coms and movies. And every day we struggle to free ourselves from those who would have us view the world through rose-colored glasses with polorizing lens. >It's a PG13 movie.

(That's a joke and no Dr.J I don't mean EBK.) >And no, I'm not making a joke of all this, I take it seriously, >to an extent, but sorry this is too much. Obviously, Sue, my post was not stated within the parameters of your perceptions. I apologize for not making my point more decipherable. >Did you realize Spielberg, Stephen King, Letterman? were born in >1947 and Demi Moore (who is an amazing acrobat) is from Roswell? >Why _does_ Letterman like his theatre so cold? Thank you for enlightening us with these tidbits of theatrical trivia. ;> Amy Home Page: "http://TheVanguard.tripod.com"
