Tragedy is the great equalizer. Tragedy can be reflected in our eyes, our hearts, our minds and our demeanor. I would chance a guess that with the exception of newborn babies we as a whole have had some tragedy in our lives. I'm not talking about failing 3rd grade, or breaking up with that girl in 5th grade either. Not even for the most shallow of people can attempt to justify failing 3rd grade as a tragedy and if you do then you should be put in the attic for twenty years. Tragedy can also have unintended consequences. How you ask?
