(This post is part of the 2,996 project, a memorial for the victims of 9/11.)
Lynn Catherine Goodchild was a passenger on United Flight 175, the plane that crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. She was traveling with her boyfriend, Shawn Nassaney, who also was killed.
Ms. Goodchild was beloved by her family and friends, who have created a memorial web site where people can leave their thoughts and memories of her.
Lynn Goodchild was a victim on September 11th. She was a person, with family left behind. It has been eight years, and time seems to dull our remembrance of the horror of that day. We think of the victims in terms of numbers. But they all had names, families, and people to mourn them.
