It is with great saddness that I report that Matt Barrett took his life this morning.
September 2, 2014.
You were a brave and courageous man. Thank you for being my friend. Rest now.
• In 2011, Matt was a Special Guest Speaker at the Invisible Disabilities Association Honor Awards Banquet. When he spoke, "there was not a dry eye in the house."
His story is powerful and life-changing.
• He had a photo essay done about him by Seattle Freelance Photographer, Ilona Berzups called, Walking with Giant.
• He serves on homeless panels and gives of his time to speak about homelessness, being disabled and poverty.
• He has self-published a book of his poetry.
