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.


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

Christina was involved in many activities, from ballet to baseball, Segalini said.


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. 

Christina will miss the opportunity to be elected to another office of leadership in elementary, middle or high school. She will miss her prom, growing into adulthood, attending undergrad, graduate or technical education. 

With her young position of leadership already, Christina will miss a chance for her opportunity to stand in be a elected official for her local community, county, state or in the halls of Congress. Last, but not least in no aspect, Christina's family and friends will miss the chance to experience her hug, love, affection and support.
