T3 says that protectors are valuable because they have power and because they speak up when things are not ok. She says that every person needs to recognize when things are not ok and to speak up.
Ive had a similar experience to this (with my T3)

I completely agree that every person does need to recognise when things are not ok and to speak up.. often hard for those of us (including me) who have been repeatedly abused since early childhood.
