It's been 10 years since Matthew Shepard's brutal murder. In that ten years, there has still been no federal hate crime law passed (not surprisingly this was partially due to a veto threat by Bush).
Judy Shepard is right: "The only way to combat the ignorance is to educate and tell our stories."
In honor of Matthew Shepard's life and National Coming Out Day, I encourage everyone to be willing to tell their story.

I hope that more people can lose their ignorance.
