9 year old Christina Taylor Green, like 9 year old Brisenia Flores, a Victim of this Wretched Political Discourse!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the youngest victim of the terrible shooting that occured yesterday. Christina Taylor Green had gone with a neighbor to the “Congress on your Corner” event hosteb by Congresswoman Giffords because she loved our country and wanted to learn more about politics. Christina was recently elected to the student council at Mesa Verde Elementary School.

Then the monster began his rampage on the innocents.

After the shooting, Christina and many of the other shooting victims were rushed to the hospital, but by the time her mom arrived at the hospital, it was too late. “They tried to save her but she just couldn’t make it…I saw her right after that. I spent a lot of time with her, and I said goodbye to her,” Christina's mom said.

Christina 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 media outlets, less than 24 hours after her 9-year-old daughter was slain by alleged shooter Jared Lee Loughner.

“She (Christina) 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.”

Her father, John Green said, “She came in on a tragedy and she left on a tragedy.” Christina's mom 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. I’m just trying to be positive and strong, because that’s what Christina would want,” she said.

Asked what she would want to see happen to Loughner, who stands accused of cutting six lives short and injuring 13 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, she paused for a moment and said, “I don’t really want to say on air.” But she did say she hopes that from the tragedy, change will come and people will recognize “warning signs” of a potential killer. “I just want awareness,” she said. “Sick people are out there and it has to stop right now. And I’m really sorry and devastated about my little girl and all the people that were killed and hurt in this terrible tragedy…(and that people) gain awareness so it never happens again.”

The little girl with the cherubic face was the granddaughter of former MLB pitcher and manager Dallas Green, and she played Little League herself - the only girl on an all-boys team, according to her mom - wanted to be a veterinarian, and liked to dance and sing. Roxanna Green said that her daughter was “very interested in government, she was interested in her community, how she could help her community.”

Nine year old Christina Taylor Green was very much like nine year old Brisenia Flores, another child victim of this wretched political discourse we see today!

Another Beautiful nine year old Girl Brisenia Flores dies also in Pima County thanks to the Racism, Brutality, Bigotry and Hate of the Minuteman American Defense ( MAD ) - This happened in Arizona on May 2009.

This Acronym MAD ( Minuteman American Defense ) is very appropriate for the Minutemen.

The Minutemen killed Brisenia Flores and her Father Raul in a Home Invasion and wounded her mother. They are now under trial.

Just nine years old, Christina Taylor Green was born on a day of overwhelming American tragedy. She died on another. "Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords Shooting in Tucson, AZ - 6 killed, 18 injured" * laugner * Gabrielle Giffords * shooting * arizona shooting * tucson shooting * congresswoman shot

Christina, a member of her grade school's student government, was among the six people killed in an Arizona shooting rampage Saturday that targeted Democratic congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

The young girl was born on Sept. 11, 2001, in Maryland and, according to family, had attended Ms. Giffords' town hall meeting out of interest in U.S. politics.

As a baby, Christina's photograph appeared in a book commemorating victims of the terrorist attacks. Faces of Hope: Babies born on 9/11 was a project undertaken by a Pennsylvania mother who sought out children from each of America's 50 states who had been born on Sept. 11.

"I think it's something hopeful," Christine Naman, the book's author, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 2002.

"Maybe they were born to help us remember those who were lost, as well as to help us remember the things we should fight to hold on to. Things like peace, hope, freedom, courage, kindness. . . . Hope was born in every state that day."

Christina's uncle, Greg Segalini, told the Arizona Republic a neighbour invited the girl to Ms. Giffords' event.

"The next thing you know this happened. How do you prepare for something like this?" Mr. Segalini said to the newspaper. "My little niece got killed — took one on the chest and she is dead."

There is another one quite like Christina Taylor Green: Scott Calvin Dieter. He was born in the former Soviet Union and he was the adoptive son of Craig Brian Eric and Beth Ann (Laufer) Dieter. Scott was shot dead and he was buried in Pennsylvania.

There is another one like that: Jesse McCord Lewis. Lewis paid the ultimate price saving many children in Sandy Hook Elementary School.
