  • Words of Inspiration by Michelle Grigsby

  • This is the story of the Sense of a Goose.

  • Next Autumn, when you see geese heading south for the winter, flying in a "V" formation,

  • you 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 71 percent 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 travelling 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 the sense of a goose, we will stay in formation with those people

  • who are heading the same way we are.

  • When the head goose gets tired, it rotates back in the wing and another goose flies point.

  • It is sensible to take turns doing demanding jobs, whether with people or

  • with geese flying south.

  • Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.

  • What message do we give when we're honking?

  • Finally - and this is important - when a goose gets sick or is wounded by gunshot,

  • and falls out of the 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 own group.

  • If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other like that.

  • I don't know where I would be without the wonderful friends I've met all over this world.
