Christina Taylor Green, 9, child victim of the
Tucson, AZ shooting outside of Rep. Gabrielle
Giffords ‘Congress in your Corner‘ event.
The nine year old girl that passed in a act of senseless violence in Tucson, Arizona on January 8th, is Christina Taylor Green.
She was born on a day of another great tragedy in this country, nine short years ago, September 11th, 2001.
Christina was a ‘Face of Hope‘ literally, included on page 41 in a book about the children born on 9/11/01 by author Christine Pisera Naman.
She was invited to attend Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords “Congress in your Corner” event by a neighbor, her uncle Greg Segalini reported to AZ Central.com.
The neighbor asked Christina to go with them to the Safeway Shopping Plaza because she thought she would enjoy it, her Uncle stated.
A smart child and popular in her class, Christina had been recently elected to the student council at her school, Mesa Verde Elementary. As one of the elected leaders for her class grade, the event presented an unique opportunity for Christina to meet Representative Giffords, along with other constituents speak about any concerns they had related to the federal government.
But on January 8th, less than then ten years from the unspeakable viciousness that rocked our nation to its’ core; sadly another senseless act of violence have feel upon our nation.
