The mother of Matthew Shepard - a 21-year-old victim of a brutal hate crime - shares personal stories about her son's life, the aftermath of his death, and the choice she made to honor his legacy by becoming an international gay rights activist. Today the name Matthew Shepard is synonymous with gay rights, but for most of his life he was simply Judy Shepard's eldest son. In October 1998, one pivotal event in the small college town where her son lived would change the world forever. For the first time, Judy Shepard shares memories of Matthew, their life as a typical American family, and the impact of his death. This book follows the Shepard family in the days immediately after the crime, when Judy and her husband traveled to see their incapacitated son, kept alive by life support machines, shows how the Shepards learned of the incredible response from strangers all across the world, who held candlelit vigils and memorial services for their child, and, reveals how Judy and her husband struggled to navigate the legal system, helping prosecutors to convict Matthew's murderers.
