President Clinton went to a school to talk about disasters, he went into a third grade class, and asked the kids what a disaster would be, several hands went up, he called on a young boy. "I think a disaster would be if my mommy and daddy were killed in a train wreck." the little boy said.
"No, that would be an accident." President Clinton told him. he called on another boy to answer, and the boy said "I know what a disaster would be, if our school bus tipped over, and we all died, that would be a disaster." "No" Mr. Clinton said, "That would be a great tragedy."
No one's hand went up for a while, then a very small girl slowly raised her hand, "I think it would be a disaster if you and Mrs. Clinton were in a plane crash, and were killed." "That's right, how did you know?" Clinton asked. "Well," she said, "I knew it wouldn't be an accident, and it wouldn't be a great tragedy."
