RF: I was really impressed by the fact that your husband went public saying he
actually saw a UFO and it touched him in his heart. That is something that people who
had contact, who had similar experiences, can really understand. What did it feel like
for him? Did he ever talk to you about this?
EK: No, we haven't had this discussion. Actually, Dennis didn't reveal that story that
something happened 25 years ago with some friends that he was with, and one of the
friends actually wrote in her book about the experience. So Dennis tried not to talk
about it publicly because it was something that he just decided to stay away from.

UFOs. I think it is a very arrogant position for the human race to think that in the
multitude of planets and stars that are out there we should be the only place in the
universe where there is life.
RF: Do you think that the two of us, we will ever experience the moment when the
governments officially disclose the truth?
EK: I don't know. My understanding of that is that I don't need the world to believe
or disbelieve in aliens. It's just not anything that I worry about or anything. I
would suggest though that if governments did start to understand or want to make
public that there may be extraterrestrial life or if they have the evidence, to show
the evidence, I have a cynical mind that it might be used actually as a means to
weaponize space, to create more fear, to create more control through government
control as opposed to liberating the human experience in understanding that there is
life elsewhere. Do you see, I think that it would be used negatively. So I keep that
out of my consciousness and it doesn't matter to me either way.
