Great photograph

Samantha Sals for the New York Times
Although I have mixed feelings about amnesty and definite strong feelings about a path to citizenship for people who have illegally entered the United States, I was struck by the pain and poignancy of this photo in the New York Times. If you are a human being you have to feel these mother and daughter's pain and separation. Very tragic.

The story is titled Divided Immigrant families reach beyond barriers and it was written by Rebekah Zemansky and Julia Preston, published yesterday. This is one of the two best photographs I have seen in the last year, the other one the photo of the Iranian boys awaiting the hangmen.
