What if?

What if we all took a breathe, stepped back and mirrored the actions of John Clarke? A well loved Physician, Baptist Minister and Statesmen, he faced religious persecution and banishment in the 1600’s and sought to right these wrongs.

When we let go of fear and ego, compassion and diplomacy rises to show us as human beings we all desire the same things out of life. To be free, to live happily within healthy friendly communities with adequate food, clothing and shelter; to be accepted for who we are without discrimination or worse.

With social media and 24/7 news our world is being depicted as a hot bed of strife. “Us against them” is an tiresome theme. Through these events, we witness the effects of fear mongering resulting in the erosion of our civil liberties and religious freedoms and equally alarming, the ability to remain calm and respectful of one another in the face of our adversaries.

What if we all took a breathe, stepped back and mirrored the actions of Dr. John Clarke? A well loved Physician, Baptist Minister and Statesmen, he faced religious and civil persecution and banishment in the 1600’s.

Dr. John Clarke did not retaliate in kind, instead he made good use of his education coupled with passion to effectively right these wrongs against humanity. With a respectful manner, he addressed the matters offering solutions with a clear mind, open communication and unwavering heart. Facing treason, (after 9 prior attempts) Dr. John Clarke’s perseverance paid off; on July 8, 1663 he successfully petitioned King Charles II and secured religious freedom and civil liberties for the Colony of Rhode Island.
