Remembering the future. I know it sounds weird, but it was something I found myself thinking about on Friday, April 16th, when Providence College bore witness to the silent terror many students go through every day throughout the country and the world. I wore a black shirt with the word “SHEPARD” printed across the front and the words “Ask me why I’m not talking” on the back. I was asked by a few people and reached into my back pocket to give them a tiny sheet of paper. It was all I was allowed to “say” that day. It was all I was allowed to do to stop homophobia, end prejudice, and restore dignity to those who lose it on a daily basis.
