    Greetings Avalonians,

    that is a heart-warming story Bill...i'm happy u both well @ the end of the day...and more importantly still friends after your opening-up

    i've been struggling lately, with the concept of our final destiny...this deriving from Charles' tranquility chatting with you in the interview, while saying he's got a few years left...all this emotionless from my perspective (i've asked Charles about this, but has probably been too busy, since the news of his own website)...

    the question i have been raising to myself (and please jump in and participate, 'cos i cannot figure this out alone) is:

    1. had we known our path, final destiny, how much would this knowledge shape our present life, differentiate it from the past, and how would the future be from then on???

    i'm also assuming that if you're born with this knowledge built-in already, rather than finding it later on, in the midst of a battling lifestyle, would we go the length we go now into altruism, heroism etc.. ?

    let me know what u think

    be well

    I am astounded by this story, that Dave slid off the rope and caught himself by his fingertips, while climbing a cliff face in the dark.

    I am really astounded by this story, that Bill could rescue Dave, with the seconds ticking away, while climbing a cliff face in the dark.

    Most of all, I am utterly astounded by this story, that these two fools are climbing a cliff face in the dark! Without even a spare lamp!!

    Don't ever let me catch you doing that again!
    Chikododoo,
    When I was 19, I was at bus station with my peers when suddenly I urged a feeling that I was invincible .
    I put my left foot under the bus's wheel and allowed it pass through over it.
    After that day no one/and myself caught me doing same thing.

    Thank you so much, Bill, for that great story. Incredibly inspirational and moving!

    Love to all!
    You: Hey dad, can I get some money for some coke?
    Dad: Sure... is $60 enough?
    You: Dad. It's $1.25.
    Dad: Wow, the price sure went down from when I was a kid...
    You: DAD! COCA-COLA?
    Dad: Oh...

    Hi Bill,

    What an awesome story! What incredible courage it took to save your friend! We all have fleeting thoughts like that. What courage it took to tell Dave after 10 years. Something of a burden and guilt, that you had been carrying around for 10 years. I am betting, that you found a real REALSE! The bottom line, you saved, your friend's life.

    I had the opportunity to save my brother's life twice. The first time, I was 6 and my brother was 4. We were playing by a rushing creek, when suddenly he fell in. The creek went into an underground culvert, that went on for 400 yards, before emptying into a larger raging creek. I don't remember exactly what happened. A super strength took over me(adrenaline) I guess. But, the next thing I knew, we were safely ashore.

    The next time we were at the lake on a dock. He couldn't swim yet, but proceeded to jump off the end in about 7 feet of water, anyway. He sunk like a rock. I couldn't smim very well either. Again, I don't remember what happened. I jumped in after him. He then struggled and held us both down. I do remember having enough presenace of mind to start walking toward shore, with him on my shoulders. I don't know where that instinct came from. Divine Guidance, perhaps! We made it to the shallows, both gasping for air.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't save him a 3rd time. When he was 35, he was run over by a car and killed. Drunk driver! To beat it all, he was living with me at the time.

    Bill, all we can do is the BEST we can under given circumstances.

    Thanks for sharing your story. We are all human (I think?)lol.

    Hope, you are enjoing the UFO Congress.

    Take care,
    Ol'Roy

    I just found this interesting old story, and decided it might be a good idea to attract some attention to it! (I see almost everyone else has visited here 3 years ago...)

    I mean, apart from having Bill in it, it is much more interesting than the New World Order, or all the bad, confused aliens, hanging somewhere in mid-air while we consider shooting at them. < -- joking!



    PS. Bill will definitely have to consider putting something more catchy in the names of some of the threads, or how otherwise are we supposed to find them.

    I found this one all by an accident! A happy one, I might add.

    This is a powerful story. I think if we are all honest everyone has had to deal with a "life" dilemna similar to this but not as concrete. Thank-you Bill for sharing this deeply personal experience-it truly touched me. Blessings to you and your friend
