You choose whether this one is about Bush or Kerry because it works either way. [img]graemlins/hehe.gif[/img]

Bush/Kerry is at an appearance with a group of school children. During the chat Bush/Kerry asks what the kids are learning today. The kids all chime in saying that they are doing vocabulary, so Bush/Kerry has different children say, spell, and then define each of the words. Tragedy is the last word on their list. Bush/Kerry tells the kids that this is a tricky word to define, and after it is spelled correctly, he asks for an example of a tragedy.

One child sites a school bus running off the road with kids being killed as her example. Bush/Kerry replies that that would actually have to be classified as a 'great loss.'

Another child asks about a man being killed in a car crash after his tire blows out riding down the highway. Bush/Kerry says that would actually have to be considered an 'accident.'

Finally a third child says what if YOU and your entire staff died when your plane went down while you were flying across the country. Bush/Kerry answers that this is a very good example of a tragedy, and then asks if anyone can tell him why it is such a good example.

One little boy raises his hand saying, 'OOH! OOH! I know, I know.' Bush/Kerry says OK young man, tell us why my plane going down with the loss of all on board would be a tragedy.

The little boy stands up smiling and proudly proclaims, 'Because it wouldn't be a great loss, and it certainly wouldn't be an accident.'

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

John F. Kennedy

Honor The Fallen

Jesus died for our sins, and American Soldiers died for our freedom.

If you don't stand behind our Soldiers, please feel free to stand in front of them.
