From something terrible and of unspeakable evil, comes something good and beautiful … Christina Taylor Green makes a difference beyond her years.
“She wanted to make a difference in her life. She wanted to make her mark, and she did so in so powerful a way that even she cannot imagine,” said Bishop Gerald Kicanas during his homily.
Billy Joel’s “Lullaby” was played at the mass of 9 year old Christina Taylor Green
Goodnight my angel now it’s time to dream
And dream how wonderful your life will be
Someday your child will cry and if you sing this lullaby
Then in your heart there will always be a part of me
Someday we’ll all be gone But lullabies go on and on
They never die that’s how you and I will be
Make no mistake about it folks, good always conquers over evil.From something terrible always comes something good. Such is the case of the eye-tearing and senseless loss of 9 year old Christina Taylor Green whose life was taken far to soon at the hands of an evil madman Jared Loughner. Christina Taylor Green was born on a day of unimaginable horror, September 11, 2001 and died on another, January 8, 2011 during the Tucson massacre. From the terrible loss of the little 9 year old girl who tugged at our hearts, COMES LIFE. The organs of Christina-Taylor Green have been donated to a Boston-area child. Christina Green lives on … and saves lives in death.
Rest in Peace, You made a Wonderful difference
The organs of nine-year-old Christina-Taylor Green, the youngest victim of last week’s shootings in Tucson, Ariz., have been donated to a Boston-area child, her father revealed to The Boston Globe
The Globe reports today that John Green told the newspaper that he received a phone call about the transplant, but does not know any further details about who received his little girl’s organs, or at which hospital.
A spokesman for the New England Organ Bank told the Globe he is unable to comment on donations.
Green told the Globe that the news that his daughter’s organs were able to save the life of another child “really lifted” his spirits, and he and her mother, Roxanna Green are proud of Christina, “who has done another amazing thing.”
Christina has made the greatest difference one could ever make, she has helped save a Boston area girl. She has fulfilled her wish of always wanting to make a difference. Christina’s parents were asked whether they would like to one day meet the girl who received their daughter’s organs … John Green responded and said, “yes, he would, I’d give her a big hug. It’s a blessing”.
