  • SPEAKING FOR WOMEN

    Dec 3, 2009

    Throughout her career, Kathy Hawk has had mentors. Yet, many of the professionals she sought out for guidance and assistance didn't even know they were viewed in that way. Looking back on a civilian and military career that has taken her to the Pentagon, the U.S. embassy in Cairo, Egypt and Iraq, Hawk said most of her mentors were established with professionals she respected and admired through her own informal workplace process. "I had no formal mentor that helped carry me through my career because I worked here and I worked there," said Hawk, who is the chairwoman of the Political Science Department at the University of Alabama-Huntsville and a Navy Reserve commander and executive officer. "Sometimes formal programs create artificial structures. Mentors are people who sincerely want to help others and that's how, in many ways, the bonding starts." Hawk, who spoke at the Women in Defense Mentorship Luncheon on Nov. 6, urged the 85 women attending the event to be mentors in their everyday lives to younger professional women and men who need guidance in their careers.

  • '90 Minutes' Is Message Of Hope And Healing

    Dec 3, 2009

    There's an old saying that "dead men don't talk." But this is a story about a dead man who did plenty of talking -- and living and breathing - after a car crash that became the impetus for his bestselling book "90 Minutes In Heaven - A True Story of Death and Life." Don Piper is, indeed, a walking miracle, even if some may find it hard to believe he actually went to heaven after a car crash with an 18-wheeler and then returned to life to share his story. That accident crushed nearly every bone in Piper's body, severed two of his limbs and caused emergency personnel to pronounce him dead at the scene. He shared his story with an audience of more than 100 at Redstone Arsenal's Bicentennial Chapel on Nov. 17. "I believe God answers prayers. I believe God is in the miracle business," Piper said. "I'm standing here at Redstone Arsenal because a lot of people prayed and God said 'Yes.' "Sometimes God says 'No.' Sometimes he says 'Maybe.' Sometimes he gives us more than we ask for. But no matter what, He wants to hear from us and that's what prayer is. Prayer is not just asking for stuff. It's about talking to God. God wants to hear from his children." Piper's story is riveting, curious, inspiring and, downright, heavenly. Piper, who grew up in a military family, captivated the Bicentennial Chapel audience as he recounted his experience of that fateful day in January 1989.
