Clinton Addressing to students

Posted by Dinky Mind on Tuesday, October 23, 2007 in
Bill Clinton was visiting an elementary school one day to promote one of his education bills. He was talking to a classroom of kids and asked them if they knew what a tragedy is. One little boy said, "A tragedy would be if a school bus full of kids ran off a road and everybody died”. Mr. Clinton responded, "No, that would be an accident”. Shocked, the class was silent for a moment when a bright young girl stood up and said, "A tragedy would be if all the teachers in the world quit teaching”. Clinton thought for a moment and then said, "No, that would be a great loss”. Finally another boy stood up and said, "A tragedy would be if the President was in an airplane and it crashed and he died”. Clinton smiled and said, "Good job, now that would be a tragedy. Can you explain to the class why that would be a tragedy?" The little boy responded by saying, "Well, it probably wouldn't be an accident and it certainly wouldn't be a great loss”.
