Dennett, I love everything you do. But this may be the most powerful piece you have ever written. Your story telling — impeccable. The story — frightening. The implications of essentially a 3-way exchange — complicated at best, but tremendously insightful, in the following sense. Protecting (and raising) others doesn’t always mean asserting ourselves on their behalf … when there’s the possibility we could make things worse. Ultimately, your piece saddens me but motivates me. BRAVO!
