Kina, the 6-year-old daughter of one of our editors, walked into the living room when the TV was on last week and saw a visual of children huddled under mylar blankets. “What are those kids doing in there?” she asked. “Are they in jail?”
Our editor, her mom, explained that the kids had been separated from their parents, and that their parents were probably in a different jail.
“Aren’t grown-ups supposed to keep kids safe?” she asked.
