Man those windows sure were crystal clear.

On “Golden Eagle Day” at Oral Roberts University last week, a bald eagle named Lewis was part of a special chapel service marking the start of the 2013 fall semester when things went horribly wrong. Lewis was supposed to fly from the back of the chapel and land on the arm of his handler, Roger Wallace of the World Bird Sanctuary, who was standing on the front stage with ORU president Dr. William Wilson. That is not what happened.

Yes, Lewis, our nation’s symbol, inexplicably crashed into the window and fell to the ground in a heap amid gasps and shrieks from the audience. Wallace walked over to the fallen eagle and picked it up. Lewis appeared no worse for wear. Sad to see the symbol of our nation crash into a window like a toddler.
