Christina Taylor Green: The face of innocence


christina-taylor-green.jpgChristina Taylor Green, the youngest victim of Saturday's shootings, was born on Sept. 11, 2001 - a date of bloodshed that shaped her tragically brief life, the girl's heartbroken mother said Sunday morning.

"It [9/11] was very, very special to her," weeping mom Roxanna Green told Fox News in a phone interview, less than 24 hours after her 9-year-old daughter was slain by alleged shooter Jared Lee Loughner.

"She would tell people when she was younger that, 'I was born on a holiday,' and then we would have to correct her."

But she would "always try to see the positive in it," her mom added, because a holiday is "a day of hope, and everyone getting together, and finding the good, and the hope."

During a local TV appearance, her father, John Green said, "She came in on a tragedy and she left on a tragedy."

Roxanna Green's grew emotional as she discussed "my angel," who was fatally shot in the chest.

"I just can't even put it into words," she said of her loss. "I can't express the devastation and hurt and how we were so robbed of our beautiful, beautiful princess. ... Her light shines on all of us today and forever."

Elsewhere I've read that she had recently celebrated her First Holy Communion at St. Odilia Catholic Church.

I believe firmly she's in her Savior's arms and He is giving her rest.  May He do the same for her family.

Actually, not so funny. It's sick. Rick's hate spills out on this log on a daily basis - and seeing him try to wash his hands of the blood that is now on them is sick.

Don't remove "Woop's" post.
It represents the essential and iconic dishonesty, moronic perpetual adolescence and soulless corrupt dishonesty as well as the mental defectiveness of the left.
Good job, "Woop" -you're now a poster boy.

I cannot begin to fathom the pain that her family is feeling. And the level of politicization of this tragedy has taken on can only heap more pain and anguish onto their grief.

I do not have words to express the level of contempt I have for those who think that it is appropriate to use others pain for their own political purposes. It shows a poverty of the soul that is plain for all to see.

And as for Whoop, leave its words intact so all may know what a contemptible little worm it is.

Pray for this little girl and her family! God Bless her! She was a catholic, and so WBC is protesting her funeral. How tragic! God loves his followers, especially this young angel. She is in a better place now.

I hope god will take care of this angle.And also I will pray everyday for her and her family and this sad event has made me think that why do nut jobs get even a chance to buy a gun.
