Next fall when you see the geese flying South for the winter....flying along in V formation.....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 V formation the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range, than if each bird flew on its own.
PEOPLE WHO SHARE A COMMON DIRECTION AND SENSE OF COMMUNITY CAN GET WHERE THEY ARE GOING MORE QUICKLY AND EASILY BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL TRAVELING ON THE THRUST OF ONE ANOTHER.
When 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 in front.
IF WE HAVE AS MUCH SENSE AS A GOOSE WE WILL STAY IN FORMATION WITH THOSE WHO ARE HEADED IN THE SAME WAY WE ARE.
When the head goose gets tired, it rotates back into the wing...and another goose
IT IS SENSIBLE TO TAKE TURNS DOING DEMANDING JOBS...WITH PEOPLE.. OR WITH GEESE FLYING SOUTH.
Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their 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 that goose
and follow it down to lend help and protection.
They stay with the fallen goose until it is able to fly 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 WILL STAND BY EACH OTHER LIKE THAT!!
