Mrs Green added that her daughter was proud of the fact that she was born on 9/11 and was patriotic, often leaving the house wearing red, white and blue.
'It was very special to her. She would tell people she was born on a holiday. She would always try to the see the positive in it. She said it was a holiday because it gave hope and everyone came together.'
Mrs Green said she did not want to say on air what she wanted to happen to the man suspected of carrying out the mass murder.
'I want for my little girl, for everybody that's involved...I want there to be change, I want there to be awareness of the sick people out there and it has to stop right now...I just hope we can learn from this and make changes so it never happens again,' she said.
