Tolerance heals many ills.........................
Dec. 1, 1976 - Oct. 12, 1998
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
.....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.
The hatred, bigotry, fear & loathing has got to stop. "Let it End Here" can start with you. If you live in the greater Los Angeles area, below will be a few organizations working towards that end. Soon I will be adding more organizations & their websites if they have one...
