How Does an Abductee Feel?
From: Joni Carleton
I just have to respond to your
commentary today regarding alien abductions
before I go off to teach my 26 lively second-graders. For what
I totally agree with your statement. Last spring, I had
subscribed to a
chat-list type daily letter from Dr. Richard Boylan's group.
very few times that I added my 'two cents worth', I would royally be

from my mind. But unless someone goes through this panicky state of
one does not know the mental hoops one puts himself through. During
experience, the one thing that came to my mind was that this must be
abductees feel with no memory of how they got their marks; only their

happened in their lives that they cannot explain. How awful to
have to live
