Obit du jour: Sally Goodrich

I really must insist that you read the obituary of Sally Goodrich who founded the Peter M. Goodrich Memorial Foundation a few years after her son was killed during the 9/11 attacks.

Her husband explains, “The idea that we could go to Afghanistan — where the Afghan people were taken advantage of by Al Qaeda, manipulated, and where the planning for our son’s death took place — and provide an alternative way of looking at the world was very appealing to us.”

If only this had been our collective response to 9/11...
