Update on the Zimbabwe school children UFO/ET close encounter!
NASA team cites new evidence that meteorites from Mars contain ancient fossils:
“All the criticisms of our original paper got widely distributed, but when we did the work to prove the critics were wrong, it hardly made a ripple," he said at a conference interview. "We're now in a position to say we've knocked down all the criticisms -- and our biological explanation is the one left standing." “Welcome to the club”: ufomm
When people tell you UFOs are real but they are just “Black Ops” made by America, ask them about the Zimbabwe school children.
"On 14th September, 1994, a UFO streaked across the sky over Southern Africa. Two days later, something landed in a schoolyard in Ruwa, Zimbabwe, with three or four things beside it, according to journalist Cynthia Hind. This was witnessed by 62 schoolchildren, who had little or no exposure to TV or popular press accounts of UFOs. Cynthia Hind interviewed them the day after the encounter and made them draw pictures of what they had seen.”
Many of the teachers and the Principal believed the children. Cynthia Hind, the journalist who broke the story, and Dr. John Mack, who happened to be there, spent two days interviewing the children and came to believe the children were telling the truth. But some of the teachers couldn’t believe the story and felt the children were somehow mistaken.
“The children vary in cultures: there are black, white, coloured and Asian children. One little girl said to me, 'I swear by every hair on my head and the whole Bible that I am telling the truth.' I could see the pleasure on her face when I told her that I believed her. The smaller children from 5-7 years were very frightened at the time and ran shouting 'Help me, help me.' When the older children asked why they were saying this, the reply was, 'He is coming to eat us.' I should think this applied more to the black African children who have legends of _tokoloshies_ eating children”…
Then a small man (approx 1 metre in height) appeared on top of the object. He walked a little way across the rough ground, became aware of the children and disappeared. He, or someone very like him, then reappeared at the back of the object. The object took off very rapidly and disappeared. The little man was dressed in a tight-fitting black suit which was 'shiny' according to one observant girl (11 years of age). He had a long scrawny neck and huge eyes like rugby balls. He had a pale face with long black hair coming below his shoulders.
As unbelievable as it would be to have sixty two children of diverse backgrounds stick to a common hoax, the questions still remain: Could the older children have created a hoax and coerced the younger children into going along with it? Is it possible the younger ones were frightened enough to stick to their stories?
Over two years ago I read an article on a filmmaker named Randall Nickerson who, when asked to edit some of the earlier video footage on this case, had a stroke of genius. Nickerson decided he was going to do a documentary about “Ruwa (Zimbabwe) Children”. Well, that’s great you might say, but genius? Nickerson decided to find and interview as many of the children who witnessed the landing and ETs as he could find. By now they were adults and he knew the interviews would be riveting, especially if what I believe is true: they were not lying.
I know my own close encounter of the first kind changed me for life. How would a close encounter of the third kind affect the emotional development of these children? What do they feel now about what happened to them? Has it changed them, and in what way? Did they just put it away in the turmoil of their surroundings? If true what does it bring to them now that they think about it once again.
To me this was a brilliant idea and a great service to the truth. There is a group inside the UFO community, that I am sick and tired of, that seems to believe UFOs are American Nazi Black Operations and nothing more. They always seem to have this smirk on their faces as if we, who bring up the ET subject are just foolish children, ourselves. Well, now if this case update turns out to be what I think it will be that group can “suffer the little children”.
This case is important. What this large group of children witnessed together, if true, has profound implications on the ET/UFO explanation. Nickerson could, in this documentary, put to rest forever the hoax explanation.
So, with fascination and some impatience I waited and waited and searched for an update on Nickerson’s project, and nothing more appeared. I had all but given up. Then a magazine I ordered appeared magically at my doorstep.
In the premiere issue of, “Open Minds,” I found an article that made my interest perk right back up. “Open Minds” is a new slick UFO magazine I subscribed to at the last International UFO Congress. I would say the first issue was worth the money.
In an interview entitled, “The Ruwa Close Encounters” by J. Antonio Huneeus, a long time respected researcher and regular contributor to “Fate Magazine”, Randall Nickerson discusses this same documentary project. First, the good news is Randall finished it and it will be out shortly. Second, the story of his journey to the conclusion of his quest is almost as intriguing as the Zimbabwe school UFO/ET report itself.
Like something out of an Indiana Jones movie, Nickerson waits for an opportunity to enter Zimbabwe, and, in 2008, he gets his chance. After he’s there however Nickerson learns to his dissatisfaction, because of the political unrest, all of the children had escaped long ago into South Africa. So Nickerson ends up on a nine month journey to find and document what happened to these people. However, Nickerson’s quest takes on a life of its own and he starts to document other UFO encounters including mass sightings, abductions, pilot encountesr and landing sites. One of the interesting incidents that was missed when the story first aired recounts that on the morning of September 14th the Rawa school buses that day could not use their radios- they received nothing but static . Another interesting incident happened on that day at two other schools: close encounters of the first kind had been witnessed. Nickerson reports that at the Pier House School, 25 miles from Rawa, over a hundred children watched as a UFO hovered and apparently searched for a place to land.
Nickerson also documented what these children did at the time to the skeptics, some of their teachers. They all changed their minds. One of the most ardent teacher skeptics was asked what changed his mind and he answered; “It was the consistency of the reports from the kids.” That is just the surface of what Nickerson discovered. Could it be we are discounting important warnings delivered through to us in the least threatening way. Some of these children made a claim we read about in hundreds of reports. They claimed they heard warning from these creatures in their heads. This powerful communication warned them – us of our continuing mistreatment of the environment and how it would lead to our own undoing.
When someone ask me why UFO/ETs don’t land to talk to us, I answer: maybe they have. Maybe they realize how much fear we have of flesh and blood aliens. However, maybe they didn’t understand that it wasn’t difficult for the adults of this world to call whole groups of children liars.
Maybe the ETs did land in 1994, in a small village, on the edge of nowhere, and simply communicated their terrible warnings, to the wisest among us…our children.
