love is the key we must turn; truth is the flame we must burn; freedom the lesson we must learn

It's a day late, but there should be a remembrance:



THE ULTIMATE SILENCE
October 12, 1998




Listen to the mustn'ts, child.
Listen to the don'ts.
Listen to the shouldn'ts,
The impossibles, the won'ts.
Listen to the never haves,
Then listen close to me ...
Anything can happen, child.
Anything can be.

~ Shel Silverstein


Seven years ago today, Matthew Shepard was murdered for being homosexual.

What will you do to end the silence?

Thanks to robinhoo for the link.


Jesus. He was croosa's age. Just thinking about that makes me wonder how Matt's parents have been able to cope. And they've not only coped, they've made a difference.


Go here for more info and how you can help.


I'm using my Oscar icon because he died for the same reason.

I'm going to order have ordered some wristbands.

Thanks for reminding us.
