If we have the sense of a goose, we, too, will stand by each other

This is another timeless thoughts and learning from Wally which again I would like to share to the visitors of this blog.

When you see geese heading south for the winter—flying about in a V might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly that way.

As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in a V formation, the whole flock adds at least 70 per cent greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.

People who share a common direction and a sense of Community can get where they are going more quickly and easily because they are traveling on the thrust of one another.

When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to do it alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front. If we have as much sense as the goose, we will stay in formation with those who go in the same way we are.

When the head goose gets tired, it rotates back in the V, and another goose flies point. It is sensible to take turns doing demanding jobs—with people or with geese.

Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up the speed. What do we say when we honk from behind?

Finally—and this is important—when a goose gets sick, or is wounded by gunshots and falls out of formation, two other geese fall out with the goose and follow it down to lend help and protect. They stay with the wounded goose until it can fly again or until it dies, and only then do they launch out on their own or with another formation to catch up with their group.

If we have the sense of a goose, we, too, will stand by each other.
