Example Of Tragedy

President George Bush is visiting an elementary school and he visits one of
the classes (4th grade).

They are in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.
The teacher asks the President if he would like to lead the class
in the discussion of the word, "tragedy." So the illustrious leader asks
the class for an example of a "tragedy."

One little boy stands up and offers, "If my best friend, who lives next
door, is playing in the street and a car comes along and runs him over, that
would be a tragedy."

"No," says Bush, "that would be an ACCIDENT."

A little girl raises her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove
off a cliff, killing everyone involved, that would be a tragedy."

"I'm afraid not," explains Mr. President. "That's what we would call a GREAT
LOSS."

The room goes silent. No other children volunteer. President Bush searches
the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a
tragedy?"

Finally, way in the back of the room, a small boy raises his hand. In a
quiet voice he says, "If an American Air Force plane, carrying Mr. & Mrs.
Bush, were struck by a missile and blown up to smithereens, by a terrorist
like Osama bin Laden, that would be a tragedy."

"Fantastic," exclaims Bush, "that's right. 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."
Is that a true story?
