SEGMENT-3: The Christina-Taylor Green Foundation is giving back to Tucson.
SEGMENT-4: Roxanna Green says "As Good As She Imagined," is actually a feel-good story.
Christina-Taylor Green was beautiful, precocious, smart and popular, a member of her elementary school's student council and the only girl on her Little League team. Born on 9/11/2001, it was perhaps no surprise that she harbored aspirations of becoming a politician-thus her presence at the political rally that fateful day in Tucson last January. Congressman Gabrielle Giffords was severely wounded in the gunman's splay of bullets; six others were killed, including Christina, the youngest of the victims. But this inspirational book recounts far more than the events of 'the tragedy of Tucson.' Written by Christina's mother (with New York Times best-selling biographer Jerry Jenkins), As Good as She Imagined celebrates this little girl's life, along with the hope that has been born out of a nation's loss and a family's grief.
