Today is October 12th 2012, it is the day Matthew Shepard passed away—murdered. October 7th 1998 is the day he was abducted, tied to a fence, and brutally beaten with the end of a gun. This is considered one of the most horrific anti-gay hate crimes to this day. 18 hours later a passing bicyclist found Matthew, at 12:23am in a hospital, surrounded by loved ones, Matthew passed away. This loss enraged millions of people across the world, the sheer violence and disregard for a human life is beyond the definition abomination. This loss also sparked national attention and in it, thus The Matthew Shepard Foundation was born. Such blatant bigotry and malevolence will not be tolerated. Matthew, you may have suffered a horrific death, but you are still a light in the LGBTQ community. We can only hope that one day everyone will look upon your story and see the illumination. Our condolences are never ending for the family and friends of Matthew Shepard.
