V-SHAPED FORMATION… GEESE ARE STRONG AS A SKEIN. The V-formation is called a skein.

Matthew 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
