Last night marks the 10th anniversary when Matthew Shepherd was pistol whipped, tortured, tied to a fence in a remote rural area near Laramie Wyoming, and left to die. He was discovered eighteen hours later, laying in a coma, by a cyclist who at first thought that he was a scarecrow. He died a week later from severe head injuries.
For what reason was he so brutally murdered?
Because he was gay!
Let us remember Matthew Shepherd; and, make sure his senseless death is not for naught by doing what we can to stop the hate.
