“As a young person, I feel it necessary to show the great nation that we live in that there doesn't need to be this kind of violence and hatred in our world. And that loving one another doesn't mean that we have to compromise our beliefs; it simply means that we choose to be compassionate and respectful of others.”
Judy Shepard, The Meaning of Matthew: My Son's Murder in Laramie, and a World Transformed
