THE ULTIMATE SILENCE
October 12, 1998
Listen to the mustn'ts, child.
Listen to the don'ts.
Listen to the shouldn'ts,
The impossibles, the won'ts.
Listen to the never haves,
Then listen close to me ...
Anything can happen, child.
Anything can be.
~ Shel Silverstein
Six years ago today, Matthew Shepard was murdered for being homosexual.

Indian writer to donate Sydney Peace Prize to Aborigines
Controversial Indian author Arundhati Roy has accused Australia of genocide and reportedly plans to donate her $50,000 Sydney Peace Prize to Aboriginal political activists.
The 1997 Booker Prize winner for her novel The God of Small Things is due to accept the award in Sydney on November 4.
In an interview to be published in Wednesday's edition of The Bulletin magazine, Ms Roy compares Aborigines to India's Untouchables, or Dalits as they're now known.
