The ‘One Tree Hill’ actress expresses her sadness over the loss of her 9-year-old cousin while on Chelsea Handler’s talk show.

After suffering what was without doubt one of the most difficult and painful weekends of her life, One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush appeared on Chelsea Lately Jan. 10 and talked about the loss of cousin Christina Green in the Jan. 8 Gabrielle Giffords assassination attempt in Tuscon, Ariz. The actress told host Chelsea Handler, “It’s been a lesson more than anything for me and for my family that life is incredibly short. You’ve gotta take every day and tell the people you love that you do.”

Christina was one of six victims in the Jan. 8 shooting that left 14 more injured, among them congresswomen Gabrielle. Following the news Sophia tweeted, “There are no words to explain what my cousin’s family is going through in Arizona. How can this be? Violence is never the answer…”
