Christina Green was born on 9-11, the tragic day Islamic Terrorists hit the US. She died 9 years later by the hands of Jared Lee Loughner. It would be understandable if her father, John Green, were to speak out in a rage. But he didn’t. Instead, despite his great anguish, he still showed a strong belief in a free society.
It shouldn’t happen in this country or anywhere else but in a free society we’re gonna be subject to people like this so– I prefer this to the alternative.
Very few people can even come close to understanding what he and his whole family are going through emotionally. My second daughter was murdered, but I won’t claim to understand what he’s going through. For him to stand up for a free society and against the alternative so quickly after his own tragic loss says a lot about his own honor.
As Ed Morrissey said, “Addendum: Kudos to Meredith Viera for her sensitive and supportive handling of the interview.”
