There's a reason not to want this
But I forgot
Sara. Twenty. Queer. Minnesotan. Hufflepuff.

"Small facts about me:
Trees, oceans and mountains make my heart ache in a very good way.
I was born in summer and it stamped itself on my heart.
I like to sit on the dock and breathe in the sky.
I like quiet things, authentic people and raw moments.
Beautiful things make me cry, a lot.”

Thirteen years ago tonight, on October 6, 1998, Matthew Shepard was brutally attacked and left to die, simply because he was gay. He was found almost a full day later tied to a fence, and died in the hospital on October 12. When he was found, the only parts of his face that were not covered in blood were the small streaks where his tears had fallen. Since that day, Matthew has become a symbol for the hate and discrimination against the LGBTQ community. We have come so far in those thirteen years, but we still have a long way to go.
