Christina Taylor Green funeral in Arizona

The casket for Christina Taylor Green seemed too small to hold the grief and despair of the 2,000 mourners who packed into St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church on January 13 to honor Christina Taylor Green and say goodbye to the 9-year-old girl whose life began and ended with two of the nation’s most soul-searching moments.

She was born during the 9/11 incident last 2001, and she was the youngest victim of the Arizona shootings where a total of six people were murdered. This occured when a gunman opened fire on a meet-and-greet for Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in a Tucson supermarket parking lot last January 08. Thirteen others were wounded inclding Giffords, who was shot in the head. United States District Judge John Roll, who served nearly 40 years, also died.
