Averting Tragedy

     These days we hear the word “tragedy” thrown about frequently in the press. Every natural disaster, calamity or heartbreaking accident gets immediately tagged in headlines as being tragic. While there’s certainly enough bad news to go around, I can’t help but think back to what I learned in high school literature class: that a “tragedy” in its truest sense was some downfall or ruin caused by the character himself, that the person was somehow responsible for his or her own undoing.
