Technically, I don't believe in ESP.
The reason I reprinted this article is that when I was 12 years old and living in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, I had a dream one night so disturbing and powerful I woke up crying from it.
I don't want you to think I have dreams like this all the time. I had maybe two dreams like this in my entire life, this was one of them and I never forgot it.
I was outside in the streets playing with kids who always seemed to be too far away for me to catch up. I'd follow them but they'd vanish behind a house and I could never tell if they were the children I knew.
I heard a loud, bone rattling clicking noise coming from far away. Like a giant insect approaching.
Then I heard a voice that was very deep and inhuman coming from the open window of a nearby house. Behind the drapes, in the shadows, something that wasn't a person was bellowing "They'll never get away with it! They killed Ma and Pa! We will make them pay! Kill them all!" and this turned into the sound of women screaming. I went weak in the knees from terror and felt like running.
As I turned in the direction of Chicago, there was a massive flare of light like a sun and a huge mushroom cloud rose over the roofs. I could hear my stepfather yelling to me to get down on the ground from our house nearby. I lay on the ground and somehow a blast wave blew by and knocked out all the windows but I was not injured. I saw flaming people running down the street yelling for help.
The sky became so dark it was like night and my skin began to burn. I woke up and I never, ever forgot this dream.
Then today, I read this strange article. Make of it what you will.
