I just finished ‘The Meaning of Matthew’ by Judy Shepard
If you’ve never heard of Matthew Shepard you should go look him up like now. Now the book is such a great read. It’s a memoir about Matthew written by his mother and I have no regrets whatsoever on reading it. It has opened my eyes so much on how I should not just be sitting behind my computer complaining about the LGBTQ community not having equal rights but actually going on and doing something to gain the community those rights. It is so well written and so great. I don’t think I’ve ever cried more in a book than I have while reading this book. I recommend to anyone and everyone no matter who you are or what you believe in. I would also like to thank Judy Shepard, as if she will ever actually see this, for putting her story and that of her son’s out there for people to read. Thank you for inspiring me and so many others who have read your book.
