What does Tom Joad tell his mother when she asks him how she'll know what happens to him (that is, whether he's hurt or killed after he leaves them)?

From the movie!!!

As I recall from the movie, Tom talks about his spirit always being there when someone is mistreated or exploited because they are poor. I don't recall the exact words but his point is that he will fight against injustice. Tom becomes a Christ-figure who is willing to sacrifice himself for the good of the oppressed.
