THE ULTIMATE SILENCE ~ October 12th, 1998



Listen to the mustn'ts, child.
Listen to the don'ts.
Listen to the shouldn'ts,
The impossibles, the won'ts.
Listen to the never haves,
Then listen close to me ...
Anything can happen, child.
Anything can be.

~ Shel Silverstein


Fifteen years ago today, Matthew Shepard was murdered for being homosexual.

What will you do to end the silence?

For background information check out the HBO movie "The Laramie Project"
