A hate crime in Latvia.
There are no words! Sad

Unfortunately, there are no news articles in English that I could find, but basically, a gay man had flammable liquid poured over him and set on fire. He has almost 100% body burns and is currently in the ICU, fighting for his life. His boyfriend who tried to put the fire out also got severe burns and is also in the hospital. This happened after several threats of killing them were made to the couple that police refused to investigate as they saw no reason to do so. Now they have started an investigation, but it's going way too slow. 

Please, take a moment to pray for the recovery of these young men who haven't done anything wrong other than being together.
Horrifying. I wonder if religion or some other form of homophobia was involved.
