Beginning in 1979, Penny Kelly experienced a series of life altering visitations. The visits were designed to show her the future of our planet, keying in on the United States in particular. The messengers were little men in brown robes who would simply appear in her kitchen, her bedroom or living room. At first startled by their appearance, with no frame of reference for the experience, she attempted to ignore them. But the pictures they were showing her ultimately could not be ignored. In Kelly’s book, The Robes, we are shown a vision of our future that is imperative to engage, much of which has already come to pass since those visits nearly 40 years ago.
