Posted Tuesday January 11, 2011 11:13 AM GMT

Sounding off about the horrific shooting in Tucson, Sophia Bush appeared on “Chelsea Lately” last night (January 10).

The “One Tree Hill” babe spoke candidly about the tragedy, which ended with her 2nd cousin- nine-year-old Christina Green- being killed.

Sophia stated, "It's been, I think, a lesson more than anything for me and for my family that life is incredibly short."

"I remember hearing when she was born and it's distant family but we had always planned on going to visit them and see her because I hadn't seen them since her mother's wedding, and now we can't. And you've gotta take every day and you've gotta tell the people you love that you do. And I think it's also really important for all of us to take a step back."

Previously, Ms. Bush tweeted, "There are no words to explain what my cousin's family is going through in Arizona. How can this be? Violence is never the answer."
