What is a miracle? Here's a definition - remember it!

SHOOT: As predicted people are calling the survival of one 9 year old boy on the ill-fated plane that crashed outside Tripoli a miracle. Actually the chances of one or two or a handful of people surviving a crash are fair to middling. No a miracle would have been the other way round - not one boy surviving but everyone surviving a horrific crash except one small boy. I heard a story where an apartment burned down and the only object untouched by the flames was a bible. This was also called a miracle. Again, a miracle would be if the bible was burnt to a crisp thereby preventing the rest of the apartment from catching fire. Almost everyone dying in an airplane crash is the other side of that miracle - what about them?
