The dreams of children – a photo essay | The Guardian

A dream can represent personal identity, creativity and ambition. Photographer Chris de Bode, working with Save the Children, decided to try to capture a dream in a photo. Most of the children he approached had never been asked the question ‘What do you dream of?’ But all of them had a dream locked up inside, waiting to be heard

At least the cynical indoctrination works here in my little kingdom. My youngest daughter just asked me if the world was going to be broke (broke, like when you drop a glas on a stone floor). I tried to avoid the question by saying that it was getting warmer. "But why are people using cars then?" she asked (I am not the only one to blame - the school is filing their heads with climate horror). I said I didn't know, and she started to draft a plan where secret spies removed all the cars and instead a brand new bicycle would await the undeserving culprits. I told her that it would be a bit of an undertaking, and she agreed, especially as it had to be done in one night so the rest of the profligates would be warned off. I added that they would probably also be pretty angry about it, and she agreed, but also had a solution to this: "We'll have to have the police in on this, so they can fine the ones complaining with 10,000 crowns".

When you are thinking up plans to save the world, totalitarianism is definitely the go to approach.

Thousands of Immigrant Children Said They Were Sexually Abused in U.S. Detention Centers, Report Says

#politics #HumanRights #Abuse #Children #US #Immigration #Crime

The federal government received more than 4,500 complaints in four years about the sexual abuse of immigrant children who were being held at government-funded detention facilities, including an increase in complaints while the Trump administration’s policy of separating migrant families at the border was in place, the Justice Department revealed this week.

The records, which involve children who had entered the country alone or had been separated from their parents, detailed allegations that adult staff members had harassed and assaulted children, including fondling and kissing minors, watching them as they showered, and raping them. They also included cases of suspected abuse of children by other minors.
