In the grand scheme of things, why is it important for the government to keep an alien spaceship under wraps? The world is divided by believers and non-believers, but what makes one group believe and one group not? The few people who saw the crash, the few people who saw the debris, and the few people who actually had access to the craft itself — all were discredited in one fashion or another and yet some still believe. Is it an ingrained distrust of the government? Or did the distrust for government come after Roswell? And if it came afterwards, what did the government gain?

In the grand scheme of things, why did it matter? So aliens came to our planet. Not only came here but crash landed here. Did the government believe the population would be so disturbed by this event that it needed to be covered up with so much crap that even governmental officials didn’t know what to think? Had the government been more open about the event, how would that have changed the world? How different would the world be today?

The world at large has long looked for signs of extraterrestrial life…some indication we are not alone and that there is a way of life outside our own. When that extraterrestrial life appeared before us we…denied its existence? That doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. I understand keeping information from people to protect them–this is a concept I grasp easily. I’m a mom and I don’t tell my kids everything. But, I suppose I struggle to understand the harm in knowing about the very life we all search for.

In a way, I’m glad I wasn’t around in 1947 to become consumed with this debacle. To have hope, to have that hope crushed, to have my entire life and reputation crushed. But how long should we sit back with a shrug and let it go? Where is our evolution? Where is our human growth? Are we never going to have intergalactic travel? We should be there already. Does the delay have anything to do with governmental fear? Are we more afraid than we are curious?

Where has our cowboy spirit gone? Pony up people.

Well, I’m glad to see that you’re worked up about something, and not as down as you seemed in “Holes”. The pursuit of love, or, the lack of someone to pursue, SUCKS, at any age.

As for UFOs, I have always thought they were just experimental aircraft from Area 51. But the way the government covers up things that it thinks would be too much for us to handle, does make me think maybe there was some truth to the whole Roswell story.

Please stay excited about life and keep writing–I will stop back and visit this blog.

Hi Trailertrashdeluxe, thank you for reading 🙂 Holes was a ‘down’ moment…I think too much all the time. If you come back as you have been doing you’ll find that I have these down moments from time to time but I can get all worked up and excited about A LOT of things. ha! By the way, I’m reading an interesting book called The Roswell Legacy, if you’re interested in that sort of thing. Very interesting read.
