Today is International Transgender Day of Remembrance.  From Brazil to Thailand, to Russia and United States, we especially remember and honor these dear souls who have been killed mercilessly because of their gender identity.   Unspeakable violence was wrought upon these precious ones~~death by stoning, burning, dismemberment, gunshot, beatings, and suffocated. 

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayers for the suffering of our sisters and brothers:
