Sad. Sometimes, it hurts to think how much hate fills this world.
Daniel Zamudio, a 24 years old openly gay Chilean, died from brain damage Tuesday after he was brutally attacked in a park. The poor boy was brain dead and in critical condition for over three weeks due to the maliciousness, which was completely driven by ignorance.

Such wonderful news.
10-month-old conjoined twins Maria Paz and Maria Jose are recovering in an intensive care unit after doctors successful separated them during an operation.
Parents Jessica Navarrete and Roberto Parades were anxiously waiting for the results at Luis Calvo Mackenna Hospital in Santiago, Cile, while doctors separated the twins at the thorax, abdomen, and pelvis.
This was their seventh operation!
Their doctor described it as the moment "the girls finished the process of being born," adding:
"Before, they had two souls and one body.
"We're very happy because we think they've had the best evolution we could have hoped for. The next 48 hours will be the most critical in terms of the … risk they face of dying."
We know the girls can pull through. At less than a year old, they're already such strong fighters. Our prayers are with them and their parents.
