Diversity and Prosperity
Religious diversity of Expression....Once viewed him as a Leader
In Pennsylvania, in the early days. We demonstrated the potential of an colony that became religious with tolerance and establish economic opportunities. As a young Quaker, there would be many protestants in our society. People wanted to began a change for a better life, and I was beginning to experience with a man name William Penn. I remember hearing him word around town that he wanted prosperity with the Indians. Everyone started to look at him as a leader because we never thought this would come to place. I started view William Penn's on his religious tolerance, freedom and what his plans were going to be. I asked him what will this do for our country? He told me that "God offered salvation" and we as people have an inner light in us. I believed him and continued with his teachings. I began to spread his word to the people, all kind kinds of Indians started to attract. As I learned to follow up Penn's prosperity we began to spread more and more salvation, then things started to populate with variety of Europeans coming over here, practicing different religion and having self-contained communities. I never viewed anything like this our country but now I understand why William Penn stated a great idea for something better for the Quakers.
