Christina-Taylor Green’s mom: ‘This has to stop’
Quote:From the car window, she could look down quiet streets where yellow ribbons had been tied to lamp posts and stop signs in honor of those killed.

There were too many yellow ribbons.

“Not that it should happen anywhere, no matter what kind of town, but this place was like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting. A sleepy, charming town,” Green said.

But she knows that it can happen in a place like Newtown, that it can happen anywhere, because it happened 3miles from her home in Tucson two years ago today. And because it was Green’s 9-year-old daughter, Christina-Taylor, who was among those shot and killed.

“Just going there, it brought back the whole thing,” she said. Her terror at losing a child felt multiplied by 20.

Today is the second anniversary of the shooting in Tucson, AZ.

"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
