    Tragedy?

    Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, while visiting a primary school class, found themselves in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.

    The teacher asked both if they would like to lead the discussion of the
    word "tragedy". So Barack Obama asks 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 runaway tractor comes along and knocks him dead, that would be a tragedy.

    No, says Barack, 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, explains Hillary. That's what we would call a great
    loss. The room goes silent. No other children volunteered.
    Hillary searches 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 raises his hand. In a stern
    voice he says: If a plane carrying Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were struck by a missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy.

    Fantastic! exclaims Barack and Hillary, That's right. And can you tell
    me why that would be a tragedy?

    Well, says little Johnny, because it sure wouldn't be a great loss,
    and it probably wouldn't be an accident either.
