Arizona Shooting Victim to Be Memorialized at World Trade Center

NEW YORK -- A piece of World Trade Center steel is being molded into an angel in the memory of a girl who was born on Sept. 11, 2001, and died in the Arizona shooting rampage that injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

The 5 1/2-foot-long fragment of an I-beam was picked up Wednesday from a hangar at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The angel statue honoring Christina-Taylor Green will stand 9 feet, 11 inches tall. It will also incorporate artifacts from the Sept. 11 attack on the Pentagon and the crash of United Airlines Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pa.,

Christina-Taylor was the youngest victim of the January shooting, which left six people dead and 13 wounded. Her birth on the day of the worst terror attack in the nation's history and her death in another unspeakable act of violence made her an enduring face in the Tucson tragedy, generating a tremendous outpouring of sympathy in Arizona and around the country.
