So it’s morphed from an outrage to a tragedy now? I think I see how this works.

If there is an identifiable, physical enemy alive upon whom retribution can be enacted, then the event was an outrage.

If the perp(s) are dead, beyond retribution, then it was a tragedy.

It’s not the nature of the event, but our ability to respond that characterizes the event, post facto.

Or maybe it’s whether we’re able to counter-attack following an event before the anger wears off. It took a week or two following 9/11 to switch from flying the American flag to hanging yellow ribbons.

Outrage is good. “By god, if I wasn’t on the radio, I’d go fight them myself!” -— Slapshot

Tragedy is not so good. People seldom weep their way to victory. But it does help suffocate the “backlash.”
