Green: 'We were robbed of a beautiful, young child'

John Green is a top Scout with the Los Angeles Dodgers. His daughter, Christina Taylor, shared his love of baseball, once telling her father that she wanted to be the first female major league baseball player. Nine-year-old Christina was also very interested in politics which is why she jumped at the chance to meet U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords nearly one and half years ago. She was killed while she stood in line to speak with the congresswoman in Tucson, Arizona. It was a day that has changed the Green family forever. Now, they hope to make a difference and want to speak out against gun violence in the United States. His profile is part of AC360's series "What Keeps You Up at Night," which focuses on election issues.
