All of us have an inner voice that we listen to, the one that helps us in making decisions whether they are concrete or loosely based upon our emotions. And Then The Hawk Said… by D.C. Morris is that type of story about human nature. The hawk taps into our inner voice during life’s journey. The hawk has a keen sense of sight and awareness that is translated during the journey. In And Then The Hawk Said… by D.C. Morris, the hawk becomes the teacher and educates us differently from its aerial viewpoint. The journey covers various aspects of human nature from courage, trust, awareness, purpose, self-reliance, acceptance and balance to respect. If we begin to see things from a different viewpoint, we will then begin to make better choices.

I found And Then The Hawk Said… by D.C. Morris to be interesting because it has a cultural element to its message as in the Native American culture. I too believe that we must learn to train ourselves to see human nature from another viewpoint, to help us to be more effective in how we approach it. This passage in And Then The Hawk Said…. by D.C. Morris: “Living is not for the faint at heart that lives in fear…. Smile at the temporal and temporary and embrace it as you would a child……” sums it up in showing that we must approach life as a child by embracing the moment because nothing is promised. Life brings with it a series of ups and downs.
