Tragedy

mark as unread

George Bush is visiting a school. In one class, he asks the students if anyone can give him an example of a "TRAGEDY". One little boy stands up and offers, "If my best friend who lives next door was playing in the street when a car came along and killed him, that would be a TRAGEDY." "No," Bush says, "That would be an ACCIDENT."

A girl raises her hand. "If a school bus carrying fifty children drove off a cliff, killing everyone involved... that would be a TRAGEDY." I'm afraid not," explains Bush. "That is what we would call a GREAT LOSS." The room is silent; none of the other children volunteer. "What?" asks Bush. "Isn't there any one here who can give me an example of a TRAGEDY?"

Finally, a boy in the back raises his hand. In a timid voice, he speaks: "If an airplane carrying George and Barbra Bush were blown up by a bomb, that would be a TRAGEDY." "Wonderful!" Bush beams. "Marvelous! And can you tell me WHY that would be a TRAGEDY?"

"Well," says the boy, "because it wouldn't be an ACCIDENT, and it certainly would be no GREAT LOSS!"
