What's Going On: In Memory of Christina-Taylor Green

Posted: Updated:

Like anyone else who has a heart, mine goes out to all of the innocent victims of this weekend's human tragedy in Arizona. Yet somehow as a parent, I personally cannot help but focus on the utterly tragic loss of Christina Taylor Green, an innocent nine-year-old girl born on September 11, 2001 who simply wanted to see how our government works up close. At times like this, all Americans -- including all of us who gather here -- ought to reflect on the toxic tone of our national conversation and ask ourselves a larger question -- what's going on?
