Rome, Italy – robbers kill 7-year-old American Nicholas Green in southern Italy

1. ROME, Italy – It was a tragedy that touched the hearts of two countries. On September 29, 7-year-old American Nicholas Green was asleep in the back scat of his car as his family drove along a highway in southern Italy. Suddenly robbers pulled alongside the car, bullets rang out, and Nicholas was shot through the head. The boy died Oct. 2. Overcoming their grief, the Greens donated the boy’s organs to five young Italians who needed them to live. The gesture touched all Italy, and the Greens were given a medal by Italy’s president.
