The Quaker Hero Story of Harry Bailey

From Harry I learned what conscientious objectors are.
[“There are better ways to solve problems.”]

It’s dangerous but brave to object to going to war.
[“You must fight.” / “I will not fight.”]

(Artist: Kylin)

When Harry objected to fighting a war, he went to a camp before jail.
[“You have to go to camp, if you will not fight.”]

At the camp, 80 men slept in one room.(Artist: Katharine)

Harry checked water guages to measure rainfall.

It’s cool there were rattlesnakes on the camp trails.

Harry and the other C.O.s objected to measuring rain
because they wanted to help the starving people.
[“Medicine” / “Food and Clothes”]

So Harry went to jail and had a long trial and 3-year probation.

Lois, Harry’s wife, had trouble getting a job because her husband was a C.O.

Now Harry and Lois teach children about following their conscience.
[“Ok kids, see, if you follow your heart and spirit, everything will be just fine!”]
