The family of Christina Taylor Green, the nine-year-old girl killed when a gunman opened fire on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords at a “Congress on Your Corner” event, has donated some of her organs, already saving another child’s life.
Some of the organs went to a little girl in Boston, CNN reported.
“It was very poignant to find out. That’s what Christina was all about,” father John Green told CNN. “It’s a blessing.”
This family is amazing. Even after the horror of losing their beautiful, intelligent and sweet child to such ugly act, they are able to think of others. I am in awe.
The stories of heroism and selflessness in the aftermath of the Tuscon shootings give me hope for our country. In reality, ordinary people are better than the purveyors of fear and violence would have us believe.
