    In the song "The Eagle and the Hawk", I think of the eagle as a symbol of the noble things that our country has done. I think of the hawk, a bird of prey with the blood of its victims on its wings, as a symbol of the hateful and violent things that our country has done. Even though time passes and the blood dries, we should not pretend that those things didn't happen. In solemn humility we should as a country admit to these things, make restitution if we can, vow not to repeat or continue the hatred, and rise above the pit of self-centeredness. Even if we each just change ourselves, and be an example to others in word and deed.

    Agree the eagle is the Father (God)living in high places (heaven)The Hawk is Jesus with blood on his feathers(the blood that covers our sins)but it wont be needed forever when he returns (it soon will be dry) the remainder is the life changing effects of belief in GOD. Come dance with me!!!

    Maybe the Father (Eagle); Son (Hawk); and Holy Spirit (the love, hope, and becoming expressed in the second stanza).

    I think of the contrast and similarities between the American colonials (The Eagle) and the native Americans (The Hawk). Both are honourable.
