Tragedy in Tucson: Christina Taylor Green, 9

TUCSON - Christina Taylor Green was shot and killed during Saturday's mass shooting at the Safeway grocery store at Ina Rd. & Oracle Rd.

The third-grader already was an aspiring politician.

Her parents say Christina had just been elected to the student council at Mesa Verde Elementary School and had been interested in politics from a young age.

She already had told her parents she wanted to attend Penn State and have a career that involved helping those less fortunate than her.

The brown-eyed athletic girl loved to swim with her 11-year-old brother Dallas, her lone sibling.

Her mother, Roxanna Green, said Christina also loved animals, singing, dancing and gymnastics.

She also was the only girl on her Canyon del Oro Little League baseball team.

Her grandfather, former major-league pitcher Dallas Green, managed the 1980 world champion Philadelphia Phillies.

Christina's father, John Green, is a scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Christina was born on the tragic day of Sept. 11, 2001.

Christina funeral and reception will be held at SEAS. It will be this Thursday at 1:00 p.m. Bishop Kicanas is coming in from the Holy Land to preside.
