Monday afternoon, CNN’s Brooke Baldwin spoke to the mother of Christina Taylor Green, the nine-year-old girl who was among those murdered during the Tucson, Arizona shooting that took place almost exactly one year ago during a meet-and-greet event for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who suffered a gunshot wound to the head during the violent spree.
Green, who was among the six who were killed that day, was honored during today’s Rose Bowl Parade. Her mother, Roxanna Green, was on hand from Pasadena to discuss her daughter’s life-saving gift: An organ donation.
My mom, unfortunately, passed away two years ago, and we donated my mom’s organs. Everyone in my family is an organ donor, so we talked about it frequently in our household and my children, Dallas and Christina Taylor, both wanted to be organ donors. So, without a doubt, after she passed away, it was such a horrific day and an unfortunate tragedy, but, without a doubt, my husband and I knew immediately that we were going to donate her organs and tissues.
