Christina-Taylor Green Death

Exactly one year after the shooting spree at Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ rally, the mother of the youngest victim reveals on ‘The View’ how she’s coping with the tragic loss of her 9-year-old daughter.

Roxanna Green, the mother of the youngest of the six victims shot and killed a year ago at Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ political event in Tucson, told the ladies of The View that she tries not to be angry at her daughter Christina-Taylor Green’s heartless killer, Jared Lee Loughner. “She got robbed of a beautiful life,” said a grieving Roxanna.

Rather than anger, the mother said she feels sorry for the troubled man: “I pity him and his family.”

Roxanna recounted how excited her daughter was to go to Gabrielle’s event and how unusual it was for a nine-year-old to be so politically active. “We were really proud of her,” she remembered.

Sherri Shepherd asked Roxanna how she was keeping her faith after such a tragedy. “She’s with God and maybe God needed her,” Roxanna explained. The mother said her daughter came to her in a dream and said she was in heaven with her grandmother and happy.

She’s also found strength through bonding with Gabrielle. “It’s a miracle that she’s alive,” Roxanna said. “She’s a fighter.”

Although her daughter’s death was a shocking tragedy, some good did come from the loss. The family had donated Christina-Taylor’s organs, and she’s saved three lives and three children’s eyesight!

The amazingly talented and promising little girl would have been proud of her good deed. “She always looked at everything positive,” Roxanna recalled.

It figures, Roxanna Green in NOT mad at the Sand Hook shooter ‘Adam Lanza’. But, She is mad at GUNS and the LAW ABIDINGING ‘GUN’ OWNERS and the NRA!
NOT me, I’m mad at that POS of human debris ‘ADAM LANZA’
Why blame the GUN? If Adam hadden’t used a gun, he would have used somthing else, mabe a pipe bomb, or tnt, ect.

Still a very sad story but did anyone see Roxanna Green’s interview on CNN/Soladad O’brien? She said her daughter wanted to be a star at 2 years old, really, at age 2? She also said she wanted to be a doctor, major league baseball player and the President of the United States. Mrs. Green’s PR people should tell her to pick just one high profile occupation and tone it down a little. Roxanna Green is starting to sound delusional

Wow Katie, you’re stupid! You have missed the mark if you think her education timeline is what people were reading about. You’re obviously a godless bitter person.

You missed the point, and this has nothing to do with God. The story is tragic but if you made up the fact you went to the University of Arizona and you never attented, what else did you make up?

Roxanna said in the book she enrolled at the University of Arizona in the fall of 1983, but she didn’t graduate from CDO until 1984. She used to tell her high school friends she was going to SMU in the mid 80’s. When does she claim she went to the U of A? She should be honest about her lack of education
