Thoughts and takes on the way life presents....
|Prompt: Why do you think bald eagle became a symbol of USA? And what would you do if a bald eagle landed on the roof of your dwelling and began eyeing you?
So why is it the national symbol? I don't know. Probably because it is a powerful bird, has excellent eyesight, is a predator bird. Let's face it, if you are a young country, you want the symbols that represent you as a nation to match and track with the goals you are striving for.
If an eagle came up and landed on the roof of my house, I would be in awe. I would just look at it and give it honor and respect. In Native American culture, the eagle takes prayer requests in its mighty talons and carries them to the spirits in the universe. That it is pearched on my roof and is watching me would mean that all obstacles are being removed and that I will be protected in the path taken.
