You really should try Google first!!
I did, it didnt' give me anything about the MEANING of the motto.
It only told me what the motto was, which I already knew.
Think about Anne Hutchinson, who fled from Massachussets because she was accused of witchcraft. She then settled in Rhode Island, which was known for its tolerance. What did Rhode Island mean to her? This is just one example. Google famous Rhode Islanders, and you'll find stories of immigrants who found hope in Rhode Island, people who escaped to Rhode Island from other colonies, etc. This is the kind of question that doesn't just have one answer. You can think about the info about the lives of Rhode Islanders into a reason for hope. Remember to always think of each question through several different ways!

Wow! Thanks! That really helped... a lot!
(That may sound sarcatic, but I really do mean it!)
Oh, and I really want to use the example of Anne Hutchinson in my brochure that I have to make for class.
But, I didn't want to do that without your premission, first.
So, may I use your example in my project?
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. It should be here somewhere!
