The Murder of Matthew Shepard
This is a story of a boy who became a man and held onto a secret I’m sure some of you can relate to. One of my favorite quotes by Etta Turner is “In a world where you can be anything, be yourself.” What happens when you encounter someone who hates who you were born to be and makes the choice that your life is not as valuable as theirs. The story I am about to tell isn’t one where I would like to highlight the criminals as much as I’d like to tell you that we as humans are more alike than we think.
