No parent should outlive their child, yet it happens.

Beautifully done documentry that shows Matt as the student, son, brother, best friend & human being he was & should be remembered as. The fact that he was gay was only a factor in his death, not who he truly was & how he lived, as clearly shown in his journaling.

This crime shocked me but the film inspired me, especially the fact that his parents fought to keep his killers off feath row. Truly amazing people.

I believe he has done exactly what he wanted to do in life, change the world, only he did it in death. Although gay rights issues are not recongnized worldwide, his death got the world talking about them.
