“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

 Alien News: Betty Hill we will miss you!

Unusual Newsby Blue1Moon
AlienLove Staff Writer

Do you remember Betty and Barney Hill? Their experience was one of the first, well-documented, modern-day alien abduction stories. A number of years ago Betty claimed to be tired of government rebuffs, and was quoted as saying she and other serious persons had formed a “silent network.”

Betty Hill said the organization was unknown to the media and general public, had no publications, membership lists or dues. She then remarked, “We are learning.”

I am sad to report that Betty died in her home Sunday after a battle with cancer, at age 85, Barney died in 1969. Perhaps you remember the television movie about their abduction, or the best-selling book, “Interrupted Journey.”

Betty retired from lecturing all over the country about UFO’s in her 70’s, complaining to an AP reporter in 1991 that the quest for knowledge about aliens had become too tainted by commercialization. “If you were to believe the numbers of people who are claiming this, it would figure out to 3,000-5,000 abductions in the United States alone every night,” she said, “There wouldn’t be room for planes to fly.”

Mrs. Hill felt that the media had fueled UFO fiction and expressed concern that UFO’s were being presented as huge brightly-lit crafts, when in reality, “They are small, with dim lights, and many times they fly without lights.” Betty tried to combat this media generated view with her own book, self-published in 1995 called, “A Common Sense Approach to UFOs.” Betty did believe the people who claimed to see the Roswell crash in 1947, where 5 dead aliens were found at the crash site. Attending the Roswell, NM UFO festival had become too much for her in her latter years, as she apparently put more of her energies into the "silent network" she had become a part of.

Anyone participating in such a "silent network" is welcome to contact us, publish on our site, or provide commentary. We can be reached at: [email protected]

You can order Mrs. Hill's book on Amazon, http://www.amazon.com, but it is expensive (starting at $150) due to limited availability.
