The granddaughter of Dallas Green, former manager of the Philadelphia Phillies and lead them to a world series victory in 1980, is one of the victims of the Arizona shootings and is the youngest. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was wounded and a federal judge were also killed in Tucson, Ariz.

Christina-Taylor Green, born on Sept. 11, 2001 and pictured left, had been elected to the student council at her elementary school and went to the Safeway to meet Giffords. The 9-year-old came from a baseball family and was becoming interested in politics.
"She was a good speaker. I could have easily seen her as a politician," her father, John Green, told the Arizona Star-News. "She was all about helping people, and being involved," her mother, Roxanna, said. "It's so tragic."

So a sad tale in Arizona with someone so young taken away by the shocking violence inflicted on innocent victims.
