A sense of place. Community. Roots. Some of us spend a lifetime trying to figure out where we’re from, who we are, where we belong. Oliver Wendell Holmes – the poet and physician whose son became a U.S. Supreme Court Justice – once wrote, “Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts.” We hear from Ria Mirchandani about her fruitful search for a sense of home as she forges her path in life.
Ria Mirchandani is a senior at Brown University. She was born in Nashua, New Hampshire, raised in Mumbai, India, and has come of age in Providence.
Nothing is certain in life except death and taxes. RIPR political analyst Scott MacKay says it may be time for Rhode Island to get out from under this cliché.
