22. My hero is that poor kid Matthew Shepard who died at the hands
of cowards because he was gay.

"Shortly after midnight on October 7, 1998, 21-year-old Shepard....was robbed, severely beaten, tied to a fence and left to die (near Laramie, Wyoming)..."

No human being deserved what he endured that night :(
