Remember Matthew Shepard today. Just a young fella going about his business, not bothering anyone, who was targeted because of his sexual orientation and tortured on the night of October 6, 1998. A deputy who arrived at the scene later stated that the only part of Matthew’s face where there was no blood was where his tears had washed it away. Matthew died on October 12 from severe head injuries.
May we never stop fighting for equality and justice for all. May we never cease to battle discrimination in every instance. May we never be silent.
