A brotherhood and sisterhood among the guarding type exists. Being a guard is more of a duty and less of a means to a paycheck. Guarding is like breathing — a fabric of life for some of us.
Guarding goes from the swim pool deck to the beaches to the ski slopes and even to sites of civic protests. It ranges from the edges of forest fires to mines to factory floors and through ways everywhere. Scoutmasters, camp leaders and bike patrols have guarding instincts as well as day-care workers and those in elder centers. The focus of the guarding mentality is keen — but its settings are wide and diverse.
