That message is to “protect.”This message is important at a time when the figure of the person who “protects,” be he or she a father, a mother, a priest, a scholar, a leader, is under attack in a time when the “protection” is entrusted to others, or to none, when the “protectors” are anonymous, or hidden, or when they simply don’t exist.
