i applaud the creator and the members of this community. i have much respect for you. i was 12, maybe 13, when this monstrosity happened. i remember seeing stories about Brian's death and feeling so sick to my stomach. every person should be aware of Brian's story and the vile hate crime that was committed. people deserve the right to be informed. don't be ignorant and shield your eyes. our country is not perfect. it makes me angry to know that someone could lose their life because they dress different or listen to a certain type of music. it makes me even angrier that that innocent life had to be Brian's.
