Sandy Hook NOT Tragedy

I wish people would not use the word Tragedy for these kind of things. I think we are loosing touch with the meaning of words.

Hey Ragedy ~~ It's been a long time since I peeked in here. I am glad your are keeping active. And being well too.

To me it IS a tragedy. Dictionaries would agree. Some put drama, tragedy vs. comedy first, others have this definition first:
1. a lamentable, dreadful, or fatal event or affair; calamity; disaster: a family tragedy.

2. the tragic element of drama, of literature generally, or of life(italics and bold type mine): the tragedy of poverty

I hope this helps.
