    Harriet Tubman and Quakers = Underground Railroad

    in Politics Conservative

    Tubman's organizing ability was key to her success -- she had to work with supporters on the clandestine Underground Railroad, as well as get messages to the slaves, since she met them away from their plantations to avoid detection. They usually left on a Saturday evening, as the Sabbath might delay anyone noticing their absence for another day, and if anyone did note their flight, the Sabbath would certainly delay anyone from organizing an effective pursuit or publishing a reward.


    Tubman was only about five feet tall, but she was smart and she was strong -- and she carried a long rifle. She used the rifle not only to intimidate pro-slavery people they might meet, but also to keep any of the slaves from backing out. She threatened any who seemed like they were about to leave, telling them that "dead Negroes tell no tales." A slave who returned from one of these trips could betray too many secrets: who had helped, what paths the flight had taken, how messages were passed..


    Quakers Released Slaves


     


    Not only did many Quakers release their slaves, but they saw to it that they could take care of themselves, teaching them to read and write and, in many cases, seeing that they were escorted to states or territories where they could live in freedom.


     


    Quaker John Woolman was involved with the abolitionist movement from an early date. He traveled the countryside, preaching against slavery. Woolman, born in 1720, became convinced that slavery was wrong when, at the age 20, he was asked by his employer to write a bill of sale for a slave girl. He did write it, but told his boss that he “believed slave-keeping to be a practice inconsistent with the Christian religion.” Shortly after this incident, Woodman left his job to travel and was instrumental in spreading the abolitionist message.

    Scenario 69 - SNAKE IN THE GARDEN


    Is Melvin a snake in the garden?  Melvin and Tina became friends at one of the lowest points in Melvin’s life. Melvin was totally broken emotionally and mentally. He was going through personal struggles. Tina didn't know much of Melvin and he was brought into her life by a close friend.


    Tina and Melvin became very close during this time and began dating and eventually moved in together. She helped him to gain his strength back, help him with his finances as well as other issues in different areas in his life.


    Now that Melvin is back on his feet, he feels the need to move out on his own after living with Tina for two years. Tina felt used and betrayed and she felt that they have built a bond that he is now breaking as he says he needs to live on his own.


    Tina feels that they can no longer be friends.


    Is Tina being selfish or Melvin? Melvin is still asking for some help from Tina, should she be the bigger person and help someone whom she thought was a friend who respected, appreciated, and cared about her? Or should she just cut her losses?
