RIP Christina Taylor Green: Born on 9/11, Died today by a gunman's hand
allvoices ^ | 1/8 | borderexplorer

Posted on 01/08/2011 8:23:09 PM PST by RummyChick

Christina Taylor Green, nine-year-old victim in today's Tucson shootings, once was an infant designated to be a "Face of Hope" by virtue of her birth on September 11, 2001. She was one of the children born on 9/11 to be featured in the book by Christine Pisera Naman which was dedicated to all the babies born on the day the World Trade Towers in New York City were taken down in an act of terrorism.

Ironically, today her life ended in violence, as she fell under the attack of a gunman at a political function at a supermarket.

A neighbor was going to the Giffords event today, the Arizona Republic reports, and invited Christina along simply because she thought she would enjoy it, according to Christina's uncle, Greg Segalini. Christina was newly elected to the student council at her school.

The event, an opportunity for constituents to meet Giffords and discuss any concerns they had related to the federal government, was an outdoor family friendly event.

A talented girl, Christina Green participated in many activities, ranging from ballet to baseball.

"How do you prepare for something like this? My little niece got killed--took one on the chest and she is dead," Segalini reportedly said outside the girl's house.

The public yields a stunned assent.

"She was born on 9-11 and died today? That's the most tragic thing I've ever heard," a Facebook comment asserts.

Christina's page in Faces of Hope reads: I hope you know all the words to the Star Spangled Banner and sing it with your hand over your heart. I hope you jump in rain puddles (p. 42).

This breaks your heart. I fear that her murderer is going to get off on the Twinkie defense. He is definitely a lunatic. Justice will never be done for her. RIP Christina. I’m sorry this was the world you got.

I hope that bastid that did it is forgiven by God, but I never will.

O God of spirits and of all flesh,
You have trampled down death and have abolished the power of the devil,
giving life to Your world.

Give rest to the soul of Your departed servant Christina in a place of light,
in a place of repose,
in a place of refreshment,
where there is no pain, sorrow, and suffering.

As a good and loving God,
forgive every sin she has committed in thought, word or deed,
for there is no one who lives and is sinless.
You alone are without sin.
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness,
and Your word is truth.

For You are the resurrection,
the life and the repose of Your departed servant Christina Christ our God,
and to You we give glory,
with Your eternal Father and Your all holy, good and life-giving Spirit,
now and forever and to the ages of ages.
AMEN.

I hope and pray Giffords has a speedy recovery. I pray for those injured and killed.

There is talk about threats against Giffords. There is talk about bulls eyes and Sarah Palin's web site and that Giffords was concerned about that. If Giffords or her people knew there was a threat of any kind from anywhere this child and everyone else at the event should have been made aware of the danger too so they could have opted not to be there.

If Giffords people and the media are going to push the issue of threats against Giffords would someone please ask her (if that is possible at some point) or ask the people that work for her why on earth they did not increase security, not have the event or warn people that they were in possible danger by being around Giffords?

At the end of the day what happened was the idiot shooters fault but if Giffords had any inkling of possible danger she and her people did not manage the possible risk as they should have.

A prayer for the soul of this lovely child, whose promising life was cut short far too soon.

The fact that the left gleefully seeks to make political points over the murder of a child shows to what level they have sunk. They are beyond despicable.

I think we are all saddened by this senseless killing and attempted assassination of a Congresswoman - Democrat, Republican, it makes no difference - this is not something we can tolerate! That said, I agree with you that it is despicable how some on the left are using this as an opportunity to smear people they disagree with politically. Very sad and very disgusting!

Her life of course would be no less meaningful if she were a day younger, but it’s difficult to look past the symbolism of the gift of her birth to her family and the Country on one of its darkest days in history.

My greatest shock today was learning specifically of Christina’s death - the innocent child who probably knew little of the evil that stalks the most vulnerable among us. The murder of this beautiful 9-11 baby is deeply upsetting.

Christina-Taylor Green, the 9-year-old who was shot at the event and later died at a hospital, had just received her first Holy Communion at St. Odilia’s Catholic Church on Tucson’s northwest wide, Catholic Diocese of Tucson officials said.

“‘Let the children come to me,’ Jesus said (Matthew 19:14). Christina is with Him,” Roman Catholic Diocese of Tucson Bishop Gerald F.Kicanas wrote in a letter to parishioners sent from Jordan, where he is attending a bishops’ meeting.

Christina-Taylor had gone to the event with a neighbor to meet Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, her uncle told KTAR in Phoenix.

but the girl was in the Faces of Hope book
http://www.smh.com.au/world/us-congresswoman-shot-in-head-by-gunman-20110109-19jmp.html

Well, that is until someone comes along and says that report is wrong as well.

the eyes in the baby photo do look like the 9 year old girl’s eyes.

The sad fact is if such a high profile person hadnt been shot the congresswoman and the judge for that matter this little angle wouldnt even have been mentioned. May she be with God I am totally crying right now just sensless.
