    Commentary: Matthew Shepard, 20 years later

    Today, 20 years after his murder, Matthew Shepard's ashes were laid to rest in the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.. This is a fitting place for several reasons: Matthew was an Episcopalian and had been an altar boy, and because his torture and death brought about a seismic change in the way our nation came to view gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender citizens of our country.

    Remembering Mathew Shepard as hate crimes increase

    Twenty years ago this month, when Matthew Shepard, a 21-year-old University of Wyoming student, went to a bar, he likely wasn't thinking he'd die that day or that his all-too-brief life and horrific death would put a human face on homophobia and hate. How could Shepard have foreseen on Oct. 6, 1998 that Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson would entice him to step into their vehicle and then tie him to a fence outside Laramie, Wyo.? That the day after this blood-curdling attack, he'd be found and taken to a Colorado hospital? That this would be too late and he would die five days later on Oct. 12, 1998? Two decades later, Shepard's murder is still horrifying and incomprehensible.
