We seem to be sillier than geese
Flying in Formation
When you see geese flying in a "V" formation, you might be
interested in knowing what scientists have discovered about why they
fly that way.
1. FACT: 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 71 percent greater flying range than if each
bird flew on its own.
TRUTH: People who share a common direction and sense of community
can get where they are going quicker and easier because they are
traveling on the trust of one another.
2. FACT: Whenever a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels
the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone and quickly gets
back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the
bird immediately in front.
TRUTH: There is strength and power and safety in numbers when
traveling in the same direction with whom we share a common goal.
3. FACT: When the lead goose gets tired, he rotates back in the wing
and another goose flies point.
TRUTH: It pays to take turns doing hard jobs.
4. FACT: The geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to
keep up their speed.
TRUTH: We all need to be respected and appreciated with active support and praise.
5. FACT: When a goose gets sick or is wounded and falls out, two
geese fall out of formation and follow him down to help and protect
him. They stay with him until the crisis resolves, and then they
launch out on their own or with another formation to catch up with
TRUTH: We must stand by each other in times of need.
WE ARE FORTUNATE THAT THERE ARE MORE GEESE IN LIFE THAN TURKEYS.
LET'S REMEMBER TO UPHOLD EACH OTHER IN FRIENDSHIP AND GIVE EACH
OTHER A BIG "HONK" MORE OFTEN.
