Remember Matthew GraphicMatthew @ the beach

Everytime I think of this ......

Oct. 10, 1998 - LARAMIE - Tied to a wooden fence along an old dirt road, the weight of his small body sagging against the cheap utility cord, Matthew Shepard begged for his life as his attackers pistol-whipped him, according to allegations read in court Friday. But the assailants kept hitting the 21-year-old gay college student with the butt of a .357 Magnum until they believed he was dead. They broke his skull. Then they took his wallet, his patent leather shoes and took off to burglarize his house. Albany County Judge Robert Castor read the allegations against Russel Arthur Henderson, 21, and Aaron James McKinney, age unknown, on Friday during the pair's initial court appearance.

Matthew Shephard's Memorial Web Site

.....I come to my memorial here and try to see how & what I can do to make it better & a more fitting tribute. I don't get to upgrade it as often as I should. Yet I do think about Matthew & his terrible fate quite often. I do not get to upgrade the site as often as I could because most of the times that Matthew is in my thoughts I am out doing something, trying to make a difference.
