"It takes a village to bury a child" Can't Post

Today is the tenth anniversary of the death of Matthew Shepard. This morning in my church in the town where Shepard died, the minister lit a candle in his memory and spoke about him in his sermon. He said "It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a village to bury a child. And it takes a village to say 'Never again will this happen here.'"

But of course it did happen again here, in the town I work in, a few miles away; last summer Angie Zapata was murdered for being transgendered. We've come a long way, but we still have a long way to go.

"For DORA BAGGINS in memory of a LONG correspondence, with love from Bilbo; on a large wastebasket. Dora was Drogo's sister, and the eldest surviving female relative of Bilbo and Frodo; she was ninety-nine, and had written reams of good advice for more than half a century."
