Christina's Pledge Facebook Link

9/11 baby was a "Face of Hope"

The life of Christina Green was ended in the shooting in Tucson, Arizona, yesterday. A friend of mine created a Facebook group for those who will pledge to be civil in their discourse. For those who will agree to disagree and promote using words and not violence to sway a point of view.

Christina was interested in government. No child should die because she was interested, at nine years of age, in participating in government to make the lives of others better. Christina's life needs to mean something to us, the bereaved community, perhaps, it can mean civility. Consider joining the group, Christina's Pledge" on Facebook, a group that will include those who may disagree with you, but will also pledge to do their best to avoid rhetoric that takes civil discourse to violence.

Peace. Please. Peace.


  1. With all my heart and soul, I am sorry beyond words.

  2. In memory of your daughter: when engaging in political discourse, I pledge to conduct myself in a civil manner, and I will denounce violent rhetoric.
