Remembering Matthew Shepard 13 years later.

Can you believe that it has been 13 years since Matthew Shepard was murdered?  Every time I recall this tragedy, I feel so sad and melancholy.  It was a terrible tragedy and a situation that we should never forget and strive to have this never happen again.

Unfortunately, bullying happens a lot and we've all heard and read about the most recent sad stories.  Let's listen to our children.  Let's sit them down and ask them how they are doing.  Let's take the time to notice subtle changes and even if your suspicions maybe be nothing at all, at least you'll know that you took the time to check in on you kid.

December 1, 1976 -  October 12, 1998
