Message From Judy Shepard: Stop Bullying of LGBT Youth

29 Jan

As most of you know, Judy Shepard lost her son, Matthew, to a brutal hate crime, because of Matthew’s sexual orientation.  I hope you will watch this video but I also hope you will share it with as many people as you can.  With now over 15 gay teen suicides, we must band together and STOP bullying against LGBT youth. Regardless of how anyone feels about homosexuality, it is our job as fellow human beings to ensure that people feel safe and without the threat of violence!  For those of you that follow this blog regularly, you know I am consumed with trying to make the world a better place for the LGBT community and for full equality. I am enlisting your help. Click here to see the video.

    I cry like the Mock Turtle every time this powerful woman makes a public statement. I simply cannot believe how much good work she does out of such a tragedy. She would have every right to descend into bitterness. If I believed in angels, I’d be looking for her halo.

      I lose at least 5 pounds in water crying every time I hear her speak. I hope I will eventually be as inspirational as she is.
