Christina Green was 9 years old, just recently elected to serve her school as a leader. Everyone recognized her potential, so much so that a neighbor asked her parents’ permission to take her to meet her congresswoman. A simple act on a sunny day filled with promise.
A child born on Sept.11, 2001. At 9 she cared about the world, she was interested in the future. Today we are instead focusing on the dimming of a bright star in the constellation of life.
It is time to put aside the separating of our common future with the demonetization of each other over petty politics. It cost us too much to continue playing with emotion-driven political dogma as if we can somehow control the rage it causes.
Christina was the face of hope. In her memory let us begin to reflect on our common future. The Lord bless her, keep her, and keep her face before us.
