I saw this image shortly after it was published on Twitter, and it has affected me. My kids both had passports at very early ages — my daughter starting walking on one of our (then) frequent business trips to Malaysia and Singapore. My son could barely hold his head up for the pharmacy assistant taking his passport photo when it was his turn. We liked to travel with our children.
But this image, and the implicit background ‘facts of life’ for the child in it, hurts, somehow.
It has troubled me for days.
