Most heartbreaking thing I've read in a long time

SL Letter of the Day: Show This Woman Some Love | Slog

I got a call from my oldest sister last month. I wasn't sure what she was going to tell me—had one of my parents died? was I going to be let back into the family?—and then she told me that she needed my help. Her son was gay and she needed me to come and get him. I didn't understand what she meant at first. I thought she wanted me to come and talk to him. But, no, she meant come and get him. She didn't want that "filth"—her own son—in her home. When I picked him up a large part of my family was there, and I swear to God I had never felt so much hate in my life. I don't understand it and I know I never will, but I swear it broke me.
So with a boundless mind may I cherish all living things,
Suffusing love over the entire world -
Above, below, and all around, without limit;
So may I cultivate an infinite good will toward the whole world. - Metta Sutta
