2011年，我有幸参与到‘Matt Shepard是我的朋友（Matt Shepard Is A Friend Of Mine）’电影的制作中，电影导演是我的朋友Michele Josue，也是Matt的一个好朋友。当时我觉得我终于有机会亲身看见听见那些天发生了什么，也通过Matt的朋友和父母进一步了解他。其中Dennis Shepard在法庭上的一段话让我和其他人都非常感动：
“By the end of the beating, his body was just trying to survive. You left him out there by himself, but he wasn’t alone. There were his lifelong friends with him – friends that he had grown up with. You’re probably wondering who these friends were. First he had the beautiful night sky with the same stars and moon that we used to look at through a telescope. Then, he had the daylight and the sun to shine on him one more time- one more cool, wonderful autumn day in Wyoming. His last day alive in Wyoming. His last day alive in the state that he always proudly called home. And through it all he was breathing in for the last time the smell of Wyoming sagebrush and the scent of pine trees from the snowy range. He heard the wind- the ever-present Wyoming wind- for the last time. He had one more friend with him. One he grew to know through his time in Sunday school and as an acolyte at St. Mark’s in Casper as well as through his visits to St. Matthew’s in Laramie. He had God.
