Talking A little political humor

John Kerry visits a primary school classroom. They are in the
middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.
The teacher asks Mr. Kerry if he would like to lead the
discussion on the word "tragedy." So the illustrious Senator
asks the class for an example of a tragedy. One little boy
stands up and offers: "If my best friend, who lives on a
farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs him over and
kills him that would be a 'tragedy'" "No," says Kerry,
"that would be an accident". A little girl raises 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 Mr. Kerry. "That's what we would call a
'great loss'." The room goes silent. No other children
volunteered. Kerry searches the room. "Isn't there someone
here who can give mean example of a 'tragedy'?" Finally, at
the back of the room a small boy raises his hand. In a quiet
voice, he says: "If your campaign plane, carrying you, Mr.
Kerry, were struck by a 'friendly fire' missile and blown to
smithereens that would be a 'tragedy'." "Fantastic!" exclaims
Kerry. "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a
'tragedy'?" "Well," says the boy "because it certainly
wouldn't be a 'great loss' and it probably wouldn't be an
'accident' either.


Standing together
Side by side
Staying true to what’s inside
United as one, we fight
