Accident, Great Loss, or Tragedy?

Presidential candidate, Barack Obama was visiting a primary

school and he visited one of the classes. They were in the middle of a

discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked the

presidential candidate if he would like to lead the discussion on the

word 'tragedy'. So our illustrious democrat presidential candidate

asked the class for an example of a 'tragedy'. One little boy stood

up and offered: 'If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in

the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a

tragedy.' 'No,' said Obama, 'that would be an accident.' A little

girl raised her hand: 'If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over

a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy.' 'I'm

afraid not,' explained Obama. 'That's what we would call a great loss.'

The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Obama searched

the room. 'Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a

tragedy?' Finally at the back of the room, Little Johnny raised his

hand. In a quiet voice he said: 'If the plane carrying you and Mrs.

Obama was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile and blown to smithereens

that would be a tragedy.' 'Fantastic!' exclaimed Obama. 'That's

right. And can you tell me why that would be tragedy?' 'Well,' says

the boy, 'It has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn't be a

great loss... and it probably wouldn't be an accident either.
