The hawk symbolizes the strength and freedom that Kevin sought in his own life. He had a favorite quote that he used to recite to friends and family almost daily. It came from the movie "O" and went like this:
"All my life I always wanted to fly. I always wanted to live like a hawk,. I know you're not supposed to be jealous of anything, but...to take flight, to soar above everything and everyone, now that's living. But a hawk is no good around normal birds. It can't fit in. Even though all the other birds probably wanna be hawks; they hate him for what they can't be. Proud. Powerful. Determined. Dark. Odin is a hawk. He soars above us. He can fly. One of these days, everyone's gonna pay attention to me. Because I;m gonna fly too."
The Movie "O"
Kevin knew he was different. He also believed that someday he would accomplish great things. Little did he know that the small kindnesses he showed daily were really the great things. We believe that people are paying attention to Kevin as he continues to impact the lives of others through the kindnesses and good deeds that we believe are KHeaven Sent!
