  • THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: “Lessons from Geese”: Fact: When a goose gets sick, wounded or shot down, two geese drop out of formation and follow it down to help and protect it.  They stay with it until it dies or is able to fly again.  Then, they launch out with another formation or catch up with the flock.  Lesson:  If we have as much sense as geese, we will stand by each other in difficult times as well as when we are strong.
