Hope. It's what keeps us going when storm clouds move into our lives, in those darkest moments when there seems to be no glimmer of light. Hope. The poet Emily Dickinson said "Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all." And as we hear from Samantha Andersen, hope is what she found where she dared to expect it.
Samantha Andersen is an independent education consultant living in Pawtucket. After living in various states across the country, she settled in Rhode Island in 2012, and believes that in the Ocean State she has found her “forever home.”
