Christina Taylor Green, Part 2

Christina Taylor Green, born on September 11, 2001 and died January 15, 2010 in Tucson.

What events linked her birth and death?  Born on a day of monstrous foreign terrorism, and killed on a day of deadly domestic terrorism.

Determinism is the belief that our life is not our own to determine, but rather events, the universe, or God set it all up. We are just actors reading a script.

This is a little different from Fatalism, which is that Christina was going to die last Saturday regardless of chains of causality.

What were the elements of the determinism. Did hatred of Muslims get confused with hatred of Mexicans get confused with hatred of congresswomen?

I don't want to focus on Jared Lee Loughner. Anyone who would shoot up a shopping center on mid-day with kids and old folks milling about is not worth focus. Clearly deranged.

It is wrong that the deranged can steal the life from the innocent.
