Be Loyal is to be faithful to ones friends , principles , country , school , job , etc.
Loyalty Essay is a tenet that everybody have , animals have it too . Gorillas are a clear example
of it . In Africa these great apes live in group .
As many as thirty gorillas may live
together, but there are more likely to be from six to seventeen animals in a group . The
group always include at least one full-grown male that by this time has grown a saddle
silver hair on his back . Whithin the group there are often one or more younger black back
males , a few females , and a number of youngsters and infants . A mature silverback at
least twelve years old is their leader . This enormous gorilla decides when and where the
group travels , feeds , rests and sleeps . The leader is the chief protector of the group .
When danger threatens , the others usually slip off , leaving the silverback behind to warn
and repel the invader . They rarely fight . Females gorillas may scream at each other – and
perhaps even scratch and bite lightly . At such times glare from the silverback is enough to
restore the peace . A stare or nudge from the leader also keeps the males behaving . With
infants , even the firmest leader is often easygoing .
He allows them to pull his hair , punch
him , and crawl all over him . Once when a little gorilla leaned against a huge silverback ,
the male grabbed a long-stemmed flower and tickled the infant with it . Babies are in fact ,
popular with the entire group . Male and female gorillas hug and play with them much the
way we do with human babies .
Females move up in rank when they become mothers . If one wants a better place to sit , a
childless female will move over for her .
Or a female without little ones will play baby-
sitter while a mother eats or naps .
The jungle exposes all animals to dangers , even the mighty gorilla . These great apes
climb trees carefully , but now and then they misjudge the strength of the branches and
fall. They also get injuried by running into sharp , pointed branches . When they can , they
treat their own wounds . They lick the broken skin and pull the hair from the injured area .
If they cant reach it , another animal in the group will care for the wound .
In this group of gorillas we can appreciate a family loyalty . We see how loyal the leader is
to his family and the family to his leader . Inside a family is the same , the loyalty from the
children to their parents and vice versa . We care about our family s members and we
always try to take care of them . The same thing happen in our Dojan , we are like a family
that take care of each other .
We are loyal to our teachers we trust in our teacher and they
trust in us . We are loyal to our classmates , we care about them , that why we try to help
them to learn , to improve and to practice good .
“No man is an island , entire of itself …” (John Donne).
I particularly find
frienship as a good example of loyalty . The contemporary saying “people need people” is
a way of expressing our need for association with friendly others . From birth to death we
need the nurture of other humans ,and nearly everything we do is affected by what
responses we anticipate and receive .
As we move from place to place , from relationships to relationships , from job to job
(from school to school), often far away from home , we desperatey need some trusted
friends . Our survival depends on finding ways to treat strangers and be treated by them
with kindness , compassion , and benevolence – in short , as friends . What , then , are .
