This new colony of Rhode Island was a lively experiment. We humans cannot live a life with boundaries or borders. We crave freedom, this need for liberty embedded in our very DNA. Because of this, I have learned that God cannot be housed under one roof. Tolerance, whether in the form of religion, culture or tradition, is a virtue that all must learn. Find your own personal taste of joy, whether in your job, family or community, and mix it with a dose of service to others and you will create the most decadent elixir that the world has ever witnessed. 

I leave you with this: do not be afraid to question your limits. Test, weigh, and measure your beliefs like fine diamonds against the good of society. Keep an open mind, for you may find that your own lively experiment has blossomed into a beautiful flower that graces millions of peoples’ bouquets.
